CAPE TOWN: According to the Cape Peninsula University of Technology ( CPUT), the female student is recovering well after allegedly being stabbed multiple times by her husband, a Western Cape ( UWC ) student.
Ntembeko Myalo, a 32-year-old defendant, appeared in court for the second time on Monday.
Before asking the district surgeon for a physical and mental evaluation, Myalo provisionally renounced his bail application.
Myalo had a head injury prior to his arrest last week, the State informed the court.
The female student was making progress, according to CPUT spokesman Lauren Kansley.
The female survivor is doing well and has reconnected with her mother, who is still asking for her daughter’s privacy. Through a number of interventions, including counseling for the mother and daughter, the institution has been helping the family.
Myalo will continue to be incarcerated until his subsequent court appearance on Monday, November 27.
