TSWANE – Moments after having sexual intercourse with the woman he had picked from a Mavuso sex stokvel, she began to foam at the mouth.
Before long she was dead in his room in Soshanguve, Tswane, leaving the 29 year old man and wondering how this moment of pleasure I had gone so horribly wrong.
The man who asked to remain anonymous said he was a regular at Mavuso stokvels held in taverns across the areas townships.
So popular is the phenomenon that Hammanskraal has a reputation of being the Mavuso capital of Tswane.
The man who lives in a backyard room of his mothers property said he had left home to go to Mavuso in Mabopane at about 10 PM on Tuesday.
The stokvel carried on until the early hours of Wednesday morning during which time he had spotted a woman who tickled his fancy.
He negotiated a fee with her and took her home. “The feeling was mutual and she agreed to accept R300 in the morning in accordance with the stokvel rules.
I Bought her alcohol and we drank before deciding it was time to have sex.” “everything was good after sex, but soon after falling asleep the woman woke me up and said she had a headache.”
“I gave her painkillers. We rested for a while before she started complaining that she was not well. Foam was coming out of her mouth. She choked, and then died instantly, just like that.” He then phoned his mother who contacted the police.
SAPS Took the body away. The man was taken to Soshanguve Police Station. “I was still in shock, so my mother spoke to the police. No case was opened ,” he said.
The man says he curses the day he got involved in Mavuso and he said he would never take part in the stokvel again.
“I can’t believe that there was a corpse in my bed, moreso of a person whose name I didn’t know.”
The deceased’s family would track down through her cell phone, and later on Wednesday were called to identify the body, which had been taken in for a post mortem.
The two families agreed to help each other with the burial. It also emerged it was not the first time misfortune struck him after a night of sexual pleasures. He previously took a woman home from Mavuso and failed to pay her the money that they had agreed on. She took one shoe from every pair as punishment. “fate is teaching me a valuable lesson here. I urge everyone to stay away from Mavuso,” he added.
President Jacob Zuma condemned the prevalence of the sex stokvels, and said women and girls need to be protected from them. “we cannot and should not subject or children to this abuse and danger,” Zuma said to cheers from the crowd during the youth day celebrations in Soweto.
