The rape and killing of a 15-year-old girl from Ottosdal, North West was barbaric, the ANC Women's League said on Wednesday. "The ANCWL is taken aback by this barbaric act... We call upon all South Africans to fight against the perpetrators of these criminal acts against our kids, sisters and mothers," ANCWL provincial secretary Meokgo Matuba said in a statement. On Sunday, Mmanane Mainamo's body was found inside a grave at a cemetery in Ottosdal, Matuba said.

She was last seen on Saturday when her parents sent her to fetch blankets in a nearby settlement.

The league said it would launch a campaign against women and child abuse on August 18.

The police could not immediately give details of the case.
