The Gauteng Provincial Government has stepped in to assist with the burial cost and psychosocial support for the family of Lerato Moloi (27) of Naledi, Soweto.

We would like to take this opportunity to call upon the people of Gauteng to declare an end to these senseless killings of defenceless young women. As Government we will do all in our power to ensure justice and stand by all the victims’ families to help them deal with their tragic losses, she said.
