Three women killed in the WC during 16 days of activism

9 December 2016 11:25 AM
As we wrap up the year, EWN reporter, Lauren Issacs shares some of the interesting stories covered in 2016.

It seems 16 days of activism against women and children abuse came with more violence for women. Lauren Issacs, EWN reporter speaks of three murders that took place during the start of the activism period.

First, it was the murder of Noluvo Swelindawo who's body was found dumped alongside the N2 highway.

In a separate incident, Thembeka Dumani was shot dead in Philippi East.

In Khayelitsha, Nopinki Fuba's body was found dumped near a communal toilet on Monday.

As a young women I feel we should be irate about these crimes and make a noise whenever it happens not only during 16 days of activism.

Lauren Issacs, EWN reporter

We have sisters, mothers and daughters and this could happen to anyone at anytime. Just hearing the authorities talk about it it's not enough.

Lauren Issacs, EWN reporter

Statistics show that the Western Cape has the most police killings. More than 30 police officers have been killed this year. Isaacs attended a memorial service to honour these police officers who died in the line of duty.
