Hundreds of people protested outside the Western Cape legislature yesterday over the cases of 10 lesbians who were raped and murdered in the province.
The perpetrators have allegedly never been successfully prosecuted.
Carrying placards reading: "The criminal justice system in Khayelitsha has failed us", and singing noba besidlwengula, besibulala siyaya (even if they rape, kill us we are going forward), the Social Justice Coalition, Treatment Action Campaign, Free Gender, Triangle Project, Ndifuna Ukwazi, Women's Legal Centre and Equal Education handed over a memorandum to MEC for community safety Dan Plato.
