More than one year after the announcement by the Hawks in March 2016 of the re-opening of the investigation into the killing of Ashley Kriel by apartheid security agents in his safe house in Hazendal, Athlone in Cape Town on 9 July 1987, on the basis of new evidence strongly suggesting that Kriel was murdered, came to light. Forensic scientist Dr David Klatzow has explained that Kriel was shot from behind, “from a distance”, while his wrists were handcuffed behind his back. The fact that Captain Jeffrey Benzien who was involved in the death of Kriel, was found to have committed perjury at the inquest into Kriel’s death, strengthened the suspicions of Kriel’s family that he was murdered.
This call out for all South Africans concerned about the abduction, rape and killing of women and girls in South Africa to sign the One-Too-Many pledge developed by Ilitha Labantu to start a National Campaign to Stop the Rape and Brutal Killing of Women and Girls.
This is a human rights issue. It is everyone’s problem. It is not isolated. It is never going to be acceptable. It has to change. It is your duty and our duty to change it.
Here is the pledge:
#I PLEDGE to stop the abduction, rape and killing of women and girls in our communities. Together we demand bold political leadership to prevent rape and brutal killing, to protect civilians and rape survivors, and call for justice for all including effective prosecution of those responsible.
