Civil rights organisation Action Society decried the violent attack, saying that increased community mobilisation and positive youth influences were “desperately needed” to combat crimes against women.
Spokesperson, Kelly Baloyi said:
She said society should “deal with the root causes of why the youth is involved in these horrific crimes” and added that the attacker should face the full consequences of his actions.
“We can prevent many of these crimes through improved community involvement, dealing with the root causes. If not, the most vulnerable citizens of our country will continue to bear the brunt thereof.”
