The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund (The Fund) is extremely concerned about the heightened violence against children that has been sweeping our country. This goes beyond our children as incidents of violence and abuse against women has also been the order of the daily news reports.
South Africa has a life threatening epidemic of femicides as women are becoming an endangered species on a daily basis. Statistics show that South Africa’s femicide rate is 5times more than the global rate and at least half of these women die at the hands of their intimate partners.
The recent incident was yesterday where it is alleged that a woman was dragged from a taxi by her lover and shot to death. See story below:
