CAPE TOWN - Gender-based violence has not abated during the summer holidays.

In the latest femicide, a 19-year-old woman was killed in Manenberg over the weekend.

Elene Lino’s body was found by police officers on Sunday. She had been dumped in a wheelie bin.

It's alleged she was stabbed to death by her boyfriend.

He's understood to have fled the scene and has not yet been apprehended.
