Two ladies were slain in two separate GBVF-related incidents.
Tshepo Aphane, 32, died of terrible burn wounds over the weekend in Mokgatla, outside of Zebediela, after she was allegedly set alight by her partner two weeks ago.
SOCIAL workers have been dispatched to both families to begin providing psychological help.
On Wednesday, MEC Nkakareng Rakgoale will pay a visit to the Maake family in Moupye village, followed by the Mekgatlale family later in the week. MEC Rakgoale has advised people in relationships, particularly men, to refrain from using violence and undermining the partnership.
"As a government, we cannot tolerate a scenario in which the most vulnerable members of society are slain in this way. There are not only statistics, but also lives lost as a result of abusive relationships. We urge people who are in abusive relationships or witness such incidents to report them to social workers and the police so that these heinous acts can be prevented." Rakgoale, MEC, says
