Barely a day into the launch of the 16 Days of Activism Campaign for no violence against Women and Children, a New Crossroads family is reeling after the loss of their hard-working daughter to gunshots that claimed her life.

Unathi Sabsana,28, the owner of Unathi Take-Aways in Abonwabisi street was shot and killed on Sunday evening as she was arriving home.

According to her parents, the mother of one had had a shaky relationship with a boyfriend of three years.

Police are on the hunt for the man.

On Saturday, South Africa launched the campaign amid much fanfare.

Then on Sunday evening, a gun claimed Unathi’s life.

According to Unathi’s mother Mildred,59, the man allegedly ambushed their daughter as she was entering her home.

“We were inside the house when we heard two gun shots just outside ... Then we saw our daughter running inside the house and fall on the passage.

A few seconds later, the man entered the house in hot pursuit and fired more shots into her head.
