ADVISE FROM A FEMALE COP

I am a detective working for the SAPS in GBV-

F-femicide and GBV-M

l just want to give advice to all the ladies who

are in physically abusive

relationships/marriages.


Justice is not always served in most of my cases because

of loopholes and mistakes that most victims

make.

I know some of this may sound impossible

and the first advice we always give you is to

LEAVE that relationship/marriage.

But in most cases my victims never want to leave.

So basically if you decide to stay, here are

some tips that will protect you if it happens

he abuses you 

because he might. Also if it happens you

decide to get him arrested and you want him

to serve punishment for his actions,or if it

happens you assault him in self defence.


1. OPEN AS MANY CASES AS YOU CAN.

Even if you still want to go back to him, and

withdraw the cases, open as many of them

as you can ,every incident,open a case, even

if you will withdraw them later but do it ,open

and withdraw, its fine ,it's your right.


Those withdrawn cases are filed in the police

stations archives,they'll speak for you one

day.


2. HAVE A HIDDEN DIARY

A book ,not in your phone but a hard copy where we will be able to compare your hand writing and sign at the end of every entry,write down every incident.


3. SPEAK

Tell your friends, family, people

who will testify on your behalf.


4.MAKE SURE YOU TAKE PICTURES or VIDEOS 

If you feel you are in trouble/danger, set up a

video in secret or a hidden camera ,you will

never know the day of your death or danger.


5. OPEN A PROTECTION ORDER

Although it won't stop the abuse but it will definitely work for you as prove that you were

physically abused.


6. GO SEE A DOCTOR

Always see a doctor,tell your Doctor the truth of what happened.Not "I fell from the stairs..."

Tell him the truth so that he can testify for

you and by referring on his clinical notes

from your file of what you told him.


7. KEEP EVIDENCE


Such as your bloody

clothes,the objects he used to assault you

and right on your diary with a reference.

Do anything that will help you tomorrow.

With the story of Namhla,the suspect

is still out there because there's no enough

evidence to prosecute the docket, yes social

media is making noise with all they think is

enough evidence to arrest him but what ever

is there is not aligned with the law.


There are pictures of her injuries,but how do we

prove that those injuries are as a result of his

assault.Other than that she has never

opened a case against him before, and the

day of the shooting it was the two of them

no witnesses, no links.

It will be difficult for the detective to hold him countable

Please ladies,take good care of yourselves
