A man was arrested following the death of a teenager in Hillbrow, Gauteng police said on Wednesday.

“The man is expected to appear in [the Johannesburg Magistrate’s] Court within 48 hours,” Constable Carol Mulamu said.

He was arrested after 16-year-old Nyasha Johwa fell from the six floor of a flat in Hillbrow. The Star newspaper reported that Johwa was found naked in bed with the man’s wife.

The newspaper reported that the husband walked in and found the pair together. A flatmate was quoted as having heard the husband screaming “S’febe uyajola! [whore, you’re cheating on me]”.

Mulamu said police were still not sure if the teenager jumped from the window or if he was pushed.
