Women’sNet has slammed the 14-year jail sentence handed down to Dumisani Sikhakhane, a former secret service agent for murdering his former wife, their seven-year old daughter and the mother’s new husband.
Women’sNet media and information manager, Lebogang Marishane, has described the sentence as “a reflection of the justice system not recognising the worth of women’s lives”.
“With the 16 Days of Activism campaign approaching, we need to send a strong message to those perpetrating violence, but here we are seeing a man who killed both his wife and child getting such a lenient sentence. It is not acceptable,” says Marishane.
