I hear people say we live in a wicked and weird world, but some things prove it better than others. Reports are coming in that a 25-year-old man can no longer use his penis after his 17-year-old girlfriend poured acid on his genitals to punish him for distributing a pornographic video he’d taken of her without her knowledge.
The young girl, whose name is being withheld according to AENS because she is under age, attacked her boyfriend Humphrey Khoza with battery acid while he was out drinking beer with friends at a bar in Cork village near Hazyview, Mpumalanga, on 17th of January. He was rushed to the hospital where his condition was stabilized but the damage was already done because even though he is alive, it has been certified that he can never use his penis again and as such, he now has to urinate through a tube.
In Khoza’s account of the events that took place, he said he had been dating the girl since December. The girl is a student and he said they mutually agreed to have sex. In Khoza’s words, “We agreed to have sex, but she was not aware that I was filming the sex using my laptop computer. I did not intend to show anyone the video and I still
don’t know how it got onto social media.”

The video did go viral and has been seen to verify the girl’s claims. In The video, Khoza is seen pushing the girl, who was in her school uniform, to the bed. She appeared not to notice that she was being filmed while they had sex. Even after the damage has been done to his man business, Khoza admits to filming the act, but keeps insisting that he did not know who made it go live.
Khoza expressed remorse over his actions and says he has learnt his lessons. He also added that although his penis would never work again due to the damage caused by the acid, he was lucky to be alive.
He said he was advised to press charges against the girl, but doesn’t see the point. “Even if I press charges, it is useless because it won’t bring back my manhood. Her being in jail will just ruin her future because she is still young and I do not have the energy to attend courts,” said Khoza.

But when viewed from a different angle, his actions could be seen as child abuse in court since the girl is a minor. So if he presses charges, he might end up indicting himself rather than the girl.
He now has to urinate through a tube and is still scheduled to undergo surgery that would help him urinate without a tube and maybe regain some normalcy but the chances of his penis regaining its normal life and usefulness are quite minute.
In her account of the incidence, the teenager said “I never intended to kill his penis. I was just angry and all I wanted was to make him feel the pain I was feeling,” she told a Sapa correspondent.
“I heard about the video from one of my classmates and I thought that they were joking, but then I saw the video myself and lost my mind.”
“I had to do something to show him that I was angry and wanted to hurt him so that he can see that he messed with the wrong girl,” she said.
She confessed that her initial plan was not to use acid on him but that while she was searching her father’s toolbox for a wheel spanner she came across a better option.
“While I was searching, I came across an old acid bottle. I took it and went straight to his regular drinking place and when I got there I became angrier. I didn’t hesitate to pour the acid on him,” she said.
According to Khoza, “Everything happened in a blink of an eye because I saw her when she was coming with a bottle but I didn’t realize that she was carrying acid. She just angrily called me a dog. She asked how in the world I could have done such an evil thing to her. It was only then that I realized that she was talking about the video that I took while we were having sex.”
The police said they would file the case only if either of them came forward to file a complaint and as neither Khoza nor his girl is willing to do that, we do wish him a speedy recovery.
