"Serial Killing Continues" - Tears As Woman Dead Body Found Again

Despite the arrest of the purported serial killer of women in the Umthwalume community area on KwaZulu-Natal's south coast, the police have discovered another dead body of a woman at the Philipi informal settlement dumping site. This is catastrophic. It shows very clearly that the menace of serial killing has continued to grow by leaps and bound. There is more to be done in order to halt this menace head-on. 

It was gathered that the dead body of the woman that was found revealed that she was in her early twenties. While the law enforcement agents are yet to identify the cause of her death, a number of people have likened her death to the incessant serial killing that has become a growing phenomenon across the country. This is quite bad. It shows that female folks are no longer secure and protected across the country.

It was discovered that her dead body was found on Thursday morning at a dumping site in Siyanyanzela informal settlement in Philippi. As usual, this has generated a lot of controversies and discontent among many people in society. This is very pathetic. There is a compelling need for the police to up their tasks in order to put a stop to this growing bestiality.

The dead body was discovered by the members of the public. Thereafter, the police were alerted to the discovery of the body by the community. Upon their arrival, they found the victim with head injuries. The scars and harsh injuries inflicted on her body revealed that it was a premeditated attack that was carried out by some daredevils. This is very bad. These sets of perpetrators are beast and must not be allowed to continue to live in society.

As of now, the circumstances leading to her death are yet to be ascertained but the police have commenced an investigation into the matter with a view to identifying and punishing perpetrators. This is very important. It would be recalled that some cases of killing of women were found in the Umthwalume community. This led to the arrest of a 41-year-old Siphamandla Khomo who later committed suicide while in the cell.

While the Police Minister Bheki Cele acknowledged the prevalence of the incident and promised to rectify the menace head-on, there is a compelling need to ensure that all those involved in this act are arrested and punished accordingly. This is very important for justice to prevail. Following the occurrence that another death of a woman was recorded after the initial suspect has committed suicide, it is obvious that are many people involved in the serial killing for reasons best known to them. The police should, therefore, live up to responsibility and ensure that the perpetrators are arrested head-on. This is one of the ways of assuring the female folks in South Africa that their rights are secured and protected in South Africa.
