A woman was shot while working in the Legal Aid South Africa office. She was allegedly murdered by her ex-lover on Thursday evening. The man then killed himself.
“The organisation extends its condolences to the family and colleagues of our employee. Legal Aid SA strongly condemns gender-based violence and is an active participant in a number of dialogues and structures established to tackle this widespread violation of human rights in our country,” Legal Aid South Africa spokesperson Mfanafuthi Shabangu stated.
Shabangu also urged the community members to report gender-based violence and offered help and legal advice to the people in such a situation.
