Zuma: Crisis over rape and murder in SA

The spate of violent attacks on women and children in South Africa represents a “crisis”, President Jacob Zuma has said, as he visited the family of a three-year old girl who was raped and killed.

Mr Zuma said that 19 children had been murdered so far this year in Western Cape, one of South Africa’s nine provinces.

“We as the citizens of this country must say enough is enough,” Mr Zuma said, following a visit to the family of toddler Courtney Pieters.

She went missing from her home in Cape Town, the main city in Western Cape, on 4 May. Her body was found more than a week later buried in a shallow grave.

“This is one of the saddest incidents I’ve come across. It’s a crisis in the country, the manner in which women and children are being killed,” Mr Zuma said.

The bodies of four murdered women were discovered at the weekend in and around Soweto, a famous township near the commercial capital Johannesburg, according to local media.

The killings have sparked outrage on Twitter.
