gbv fight

In the ongoing GBV fight, Detective Sergeant Nkosinathi Qwabe has been applauded by the SAPS for his dedication and success in removing perpetrators from society.

Qwabe’s efforts recently resulted in a life sentence for Vusimuzi Nhlapo, a 36-year-old man from Daveyton, who had assaulted and strangled his 86-year-old grandmother in September of the previous year. Following the grandmother’s courageous decision to report the incident to Daveyton SAPS, Qwabe conducted a thorough investigation.

Initially opened as a case of assault GBH, it was later changed to attempted murder based on the severity of the injuries revealed in the victim’s medical report, which highlighted injuries to her body and respiratory system. Nhlapo subsequently received a significant conviction of life imprisonment in the Benoni Magistrate’s Court.

In recognition of his exceptional work, Qwabe received a certificate of excellence from Ekurhuleni district commander, Major General Anna Sithole. As the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign gains momentum, Qwabe’s dedication underscores the commitment of law enforcement to the relentless pursuit of justice in the fight against GBV.
