The Spate of attacks on women within the newly formed municipality, LIM 345 within Vhembe district have reached a tipping point.
Just in the early hours of this morning (Thursday) two women were brutally attacked at Mulamula, a village near Gumbani where the 16 year old Rhandzu Manganyi was found dead with her vital organs hecked off.
Malamulele Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Alson Mapindani said the two women were rushed to the Malamulele hospital and are suffering serious injuries.
Mapindani said he will soon provide details regarding the latest attack. In May a woman was raped while fetching firewood and two school children were attacked with Machettes while on their way to school in the same Mulamula.
“We will soon provide details about all the incidents that took place in our surroundings”.
Meanwhile still in LIM 345 municipality a pregnant woman was shot dead by unknown attackers in Saselamani lastnight outside Malamulele town. Police said the victim’s mother escaped unhurt. In all the reported incidents including the ritual murder of 16 year old Rhandzu Manganyi police haven’t yet arrested anyone.
