The South African Youth Council wants the police to create a specialised unit for gender-based violence as the country sees an increase in femicides over the past few weeks.
This weekend, 17-year-old Amahle Quku’s body was found at Brown’s Farm in Philippi.
One person has been arrested.
The council’s Zuko Mndayi said that they’d handed over a list of demands to the Western Cape police commissioner’s office last week to address gender-based violence.
“We’ve called for the establishment of a specialised unit that is trained to deal with gender-based violence.”
The commissioner has two weeks to respond.
