Zakhele Makwevana thought he found the love of his life, despite a 16 year age gap between him and his sugar mama.
However, the 27-year-old's dream relationship soon turned into a horrific nightmare. According to Makwevana, who hails from the Khayelitsha kasi, he has been abused by his sugar mama for the past two years.
The young man finally had enough on Monday after his bae threw hot water on him and threatened to stab him, the Daily Sun reported.
Makwevana said he came home earlier on Monday and found his girlfriend being intimate with another man in their shack.
Keeping a level head, Makwevana said he did not fight with the 43-year-old cougar and her lover, he just packed his stuff.
Briefly.co.za learned the girlfriend, whom he met through his mom, then lost her cool and accused him of stealing her money before she poured hot water all on him.
He suffered burns of his face, shoulder and thighs- all of which required medical care at a hospital.
Makwevana revealed he has since opened a criminal case against his now ex-girlfriend, but she received bail on Wednesday.
He added she repeatedly calls him to apologise but he made it clear they were done for good.
