    Second Durban rape victim in two weeks

    March 18, 2021


    Durban – ANOTHER rapist is roaming the Durban streets, as police investigate the attempted murder and rape of a second 25-year-old woman in the past two weeks.

    Police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele said the woman was allegedly raped and stabbed multiple times in a bush on Longbury Drive, in Phoenix, on Monday.

    “The matter is still under investigation.” Department of Social Development spokesperson Mhlaba Memela said the extent of violence against women and children was worrisome.

    “The gender-based violence incidents have reached a crisis point and we all need to find a solution to these cataclysmic incidents, where women and children are raped and, in some instances, murdered.

    “The criminals involved in these murders and rapes, at times, escape the hand of the law. But, we have full confidence in law enforcement agencies.

    “Gender-based violence is a societal problem that needs all people to confront it.”

    Phoenix community policing forum (CPF) chairperson Umesh Singh condemned the violent crimes against women.
