The African National Congress in the Eastern Cape congratulates law enforcement agencies for the quick response in arresting the suspect linked to the murder of Busisiwe Ngwandla, 37, who was found with multiple stab wounds at her flat in Amalinda, East London in February this year.The suspect was arrested at Khayelitsha , Cape Town in the Western Cape over the past weekend .
The ANC hopes and trusts that the suspect will face the full might of the law.
Our justice system must impose harsher bail conditions and longer sentences for those who commit gender- based violence .
Indeed, the high levels of violence against women remain a matter of national concern. The painful story of Busisiwe Ngwandla has touched the conscience of our nation in the most profound way. It must move all of us to redouble our collective efforts to eliminate the scourge of gender-based violence. Those who prey on women must face the wrath of our justice system.
