Lesbians live in fear after murder

2012-09-03 07:17

Friends of a lesbian woman who was killed and allegedly raped in Inanda, north of Durban, are living in fear, according to a report.

Mandisa Mbambo (25) was found last weekend in her room naked, beaten and stabbed with her hands and legs tied.

It was believed she was also raped.

Mbambo’s friends spoke at her funeral yesterday about how they feared the same thing might happen to them, the Mercury reported.

“We are scared of walking in the streets of this place after what happened to Mandisa. We need to leave this place because we are not safe at all,” Nozi Ndlovu was quoted as saying in the Mercury.

Four people have been arrested in connection with Mbambo’s murder and will appear in the Ntuzuma Magistrate’s Court today.
