The funeral of seven-month-old Inganathi Mnyani, who was killed by her mother’s boyfriend, will be held in Philippi, Cape Town on Thursday.
Zukile Nakupi allegedly flung Inganathi Mnyani against the ceiling, walls and prepaid electricity meter of her mother’s Philippi home last Monday.
He was arrested last Thursday.
The couple allegedly started arguing after the child’s mother woke up to feed the baby in the early hours of the morning.
Nakupi reportedly jumped on Inganathi’s body, despite attempts by her seven-year-old sister to protect the baby.
The infant died at the scene.
Nakupi was on the run for four days before his arrest.
He made a brief appearance in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on Monday. News24
