Cape Town police are investigating a suspected hate crime in Driftsands near Khayelitsha after Noluvo Swelindawo was killed at the weekend.
The 22-year-old was shot and assaulted and her body was found near N2 highway.
Coordinator of a local non-governmental organisation Free Gender, Funeka Soldaat, says community and police have not shown a lot commitment in fighting hate crimes.
As long as these incidents are termed as lesbian issues not community issues then it becomes a problem.— Funeka Soldaat, Free Gender coordinator
