Women abusers can’t hide

2011-01-17 14:58

Wednesday’s expected sentencing of convicted “sugarcane” serial

killer Thozamile Taki should service as a deterrent to woman abuse, the ANC

Women’s League said.

“The sentencing should send a clear message that those who are

abusing women’s rights will soon have no place to hide,” league provincial

secretary Nonhlanhla Khoza said.

The league was taking a “strong stance” and expected close to 600

people to picket outside the Durban High Court.

“We are expecting people from all of our branches in eThekwini and

nearby regions such as Ugu, KwaDukuza and Moses Mabhida


On December 23 last year the Durban High Court found Taki guilty on

all 26 charges against him. He killed 13 women and dumped their bodies in

sugarcane plantations in Umzinto, KwaZulu-Natal, and tea plantations in Port St

Johns, in the Eastern Cape.
