POWA: Sexual Cases Unreported in SA

People Opposing Women Abuse says it is concerned about the large number of sexual offences that go unreported in South Africa

People Opposing Women Abuse (POWA) says it is concerned about the large number of sexual offences that go unreported in South Africa.

POWA executive director, Nonhlanhla Mokwena, points out that while the decrease in the number of sexual offences is encouraging, optimism over the figure must be balanced against the knowledge that some women do not report that they have been raped.

Mokwena states that, "There are a huge number of women who are not going to police stations to report cases because they do not have trust in the justice system."
