A Soweto lecturer died in a hail of bullets outside her Diepkloof home yesterday, allegedly shot by her former boyfriend.

Nana Monametsa, 49, a lecturer at the Soweto campus of South West Gauteng College, died after her former boyfriend allegedly pumped at least nine bullets into her body.

Police said they were looking for the man who allegedly fled in Monametsa's Toyota Corolla sedan.

The incident happened at her Phase 3, Diepkloof Extension home.

Captain Phillemon Khorombi said Monametsa and her domestic worker were in the garage when they were approached by her jilted lover.

He said the man produced a firearm and ordered the women to be quiet.

"The domestic worker managed to run away, but Monametsa was shot several times as she tried to flee into the main house through a side door. Nine cartridges were found near her body," Khorombi said.

"The suspect fled the scene in the deceased's car, which has a tracker system, so we are following his movements," he said.

Monametsa's brother, Clement Mahlangu, said: "He did this because he did not want to accept that their relationship was over."

A neighbour said: "What happened here is shocking. The worst thing is that we know the guy who did this. The police must find him before we do."

A case of murder has been opened.
