Murdered lesbian’s mom finds closure
Thoziwe Zozo has thanked police for finding her daughter’s alleged killer.
JOHANNESBURG - The mother of a young East Rand woman who was murdered allegedly because she was lesbian thanked police for finding her daughter's alleged killer.
22-year-old Lesley Motleleng appeared in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court on Monday where he abandoned his bail application.
Duduzile Zozo's body was found near her home in Thokoza on the East Rand earlier this year.
Thoziwe Zozo says even though the arrest of her daughter's alleged killer won't bring Duduzile back, she found closure having seen the face and heard the name of the man accused of taking her loved one away.
"People will know now who the perpetrator is."
Dikeledi Sibanda from the Forum for Empowerment of Women has called on authorities to prioritise crimes against homosexuals.
"We urge them to protect every woman and child around issues of gender-based violence."
The accused's case has been postponed to 10 December.
