Her affidavit reads in part: “I’m applying for a protection order against my husband Daniel Mlangeni. Things changed for the worst when I received a stray WhatsApp message on my phone, after that my husband accused me of chǝat!ng on him. He would bash me and sometimes he would wake up during the night and choke me with a pillow. I’m afraid he will end up killing me.”
