Government Needs to Strengthen Police Visibility
in KZN Townships

18th August 2014.

  

The IFP Women’s Brigade KZN Chairperson, Mrs Ncamisile Nkwanyana, MPL, has raised concern about the escalating incidents of women being killed, especially in townships of KwaZulu-Natal. In Lindelani and uMlazi women are reportedly living in terror and fear of being the next victims. 

 

“The KZN IFPWB is sick and tired of the daily reports of women found dead after being raped. We call on the Department of Safety and Security to intensify the search and punishment for those who are found guilty of killing a woman,” said Mrs Nkwanyana.

 

“It has come to a point where government has to listen to the fears and concerns of the people and work together with them to develop solutions. It is simply not right that twenty years into our democracy women have to live in this kind of fear.  We urge the police to intensify all efforts being made to catch the perpetrators of these heinous crimes. And we also call for more visible policing in all these areas, both day and night,” she concluded.
