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.
