Justice seems to be a far fetched dream for Nandi Sibeko.
Her daughter aged just 14 was raped and killed in a shocking tale more than two years ago.
All Nandi holds are memories of her daughter and she wonders if justice will ever prevail.
The Dobsonville, Soweto, teenager was reported missing in April 2020. Her mutilated body was found dumped in an open veld in Emndeni a day after she was reported missing. Two suspects aged 17 and 22 were arrested days after her murder.
She recalls how police told her that they had secured a confession from a witness. But the case just died a slow and painful death before anything concrete could come to fruition.
But both accused were released in July last year and the rape and murder case was provisionally withdrawn due to pending DNA results.
Nandi added that police had done nothing to remove the rape perpetrators from the streets. This has caused massive pain to her.
“My daughter’s case has gone cold and it seems nobody cares about it. Then how are we supposed to have trust in the police or the courts when they treat us like this?” asked Sibeko.
She sits with the hope that her daughters killer will be brought to book one day.
