Gender violence in the Spotlight

[Cartoon] Facing gender violence

EWN's Dr Jack & Curtis look at the current spate of violence against women sweeping the country.

The body of 3-year-old Courtney Pieters was found on Epping in Cape Town.

The man accused of killing three-year-old Courtney Pieters made his first appearance in a packed courtroom on Wednesday morning.

Karabo Mokoena was found dead and had been missing in Johannesburg since last month and her death has sparked public outrage.

A 22-year-old pregnant woman was brutally gang-raped in Johannesburg, while three Soweto women, Lerato Tambai Moloi, Popi Gumede and Bongeka Phungela, were murdered after apparently being raped.

On Tuesday a woman called into 702's Afternoon Drive to relay how she was beaten by taxi drivers in Johannesburg and left to resolve the matter herself, after reporting the case to police.
