Activists march after the discovery of a woman’s body in Carltonville – SABC News

Gender-based violence activists and the LGBTIQ community will march to the site where the body of a 20-year-old woman was found abandoned in and around Carltonville, Westland on Wednesday.

Nongezi Mithani was raped and murdered and her body was found on the meadow two weeks ago.

Charmaine Kgashane, LGBTIQ coordinator in Carletonville, said she would be marching to the site of a candlelit celebration in her memory.

Kgashane said he believes the police aren’t good enough to prioritize GBV cases and cases involving the LGBTIQ community that have become victims.

“I feel the government doesn’t care about us,” she said. For example, even after this incident, a week after the incident, the police never returned to the family. That’s what frustrates us even more.”

“Why didn’t the police return to the family after showing the perpetrator’s house? They went to the perpetrator’s house, but found nothing. We know they are waiting for evidence, but as humans, they should have gone back and communicated to let them know they were busy with the case,” Kgashane added.

Last year, a member of the LGBTIQ community was brutally murdered in Kwamakuta, south of Durban.

It is said that he was raped before he was killed.

Her family believes her murder was driven by a homophobia because she was openly lesbian.
