‘Gender-based violence has become the norm’
Khayelitsha residents yesterday gathered to pay their respects for slain teen Sinoxolo Mafevuka.
CAPE TOWN – Khayelitsha residents say gender-based violence has become the norm in the community.
Some community members, joined by others from areas in and around Cape Town, yesterday gathered to show their support for the family of slain 19-year old Sinoxolo Mafevuka.
The teenager’s body was found in a communal toilet more than a week ago.
Disgruntled Khayelitsha community members have blamed what happened to Mafevuka on poor policing and inadequate water and sanitation services in the area.
After a few minutes of heated debate among the crowd about the socio-economic problems in the area, one resident began singing…
“For us, we see things like people being killed.”
The investigation into Mafevuka’s murder is still ongoing and no arrests have yet been made.
