Police said during the weekend, the woman was seen to have been strangled

After a woman’s body was discovered in Delft on Saturday night, police are yet to make a breakthrough.

Police said during the weekend, the woman was seen to have been strangled.

Community leader Asavela Peko was at the crime scene and said:

Gender-based violence seems to be increasing daily and the people behind this need to be arrested. The community was furious after hearing about this incident and they’re impatient with the government. As a community we are really scared.”

Peko said the location where her body was found was notorious.

That bush needs to be cut down so we are trying as the community to engage with councillors as well as other people to ensure something is done because it’s not the first time something as terrible as this has happened in those bushes,” he added.
