After nine (9) years of suffering and fighting for justice, Phindile Radebe finally got closure when the killer of her son was sentenced to eleven (11) years.
The mother of the deceased was not happy with eleven (11) years of imprisonment but accepted the judgment. POWA is also not satisfied with the sentence as it goes against the minimum sentence of Fifteen (15) years for an offence committed by the perpetrator.
With the support that POWA afforded Mrs. Radebe we were praying for a harsher sentence. Nonetheless, POWA is still calling for strong action and denial of bail when dealing with perpetrators of Violence against Women & Children.
POWA hope that women going through similar hardship who need our support and assistance could come forward.
