Following the jail to life of five suspects for charges relating to sexual crimes, the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Commissioner has restated his promise to help battle against this menace.
In September, about fifteen people were faulted for this offence
A cumulative of 95 years jail term was given to about ten of the accused, while about five received life terms.
Lieutenant General Khombinkosi Jula said:
“It is heart breaking to listen to women saying they have lost hope in the justice system and are left to fight the war on their own.”
“I want to assure every woman of this province that KwaZulu-Natal police will continue to fight, protect and work diligent to put the sexual predators behind the bars.”
“The sentences handed over to the perpetrators during the month of September 2020 are a proof that we are leaving no stone unturned,” said Lieutenant General Jula.
KZN police spokesperson, Captain Nqobile Gwala, said detectives at the KwaZulu-Natal Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Units made sure the victims of rape and sexual abuse in the province, served justice.
