Cape Town man appears in court for wife’s murder

MIAMI - FEBRUARY 02: A judges gavel rests on top of a desk in the courtroom of the newly opened Black Police Precinct and Courthouse Museum February 3, 2009 in Miami, Florida. The museum is located in the only known structure in the nation that was designed, devoted to and operated as a separate station house and municipal court for African-Americans. In September 1944, the first black patrolmen were sworn in as emergency policemen to enforce the law in what was then called the "Central Negro District." The precinct building opened in May 1950 to provide a station house for the black policemen and a courtroom for black judges in which to adjudicate black defendants. The building operated from 1950 until its closing in 1963. Joe Raedle/Getty Images/AFP

The court has postponed the case of a person who was liable for his wife’s death and dumping her body in Fisantekraal in Cape Town .

On Tuesday, the lady – Nosicelo Tsipa’s body was found burnt and was found by community members during a shallow grave.

The last time she was seen alive was on Sunday.

However, outside the Bellville magistrate’s court are civil society organisations.

Tsipa’s family is beckoning on the govt to supply an urgent intervention in gender-based violence.

They said the dead woman’s 15 year old daughter is finding it hard to deal with her mother’s death.

The suspect are going to be in custody until his trial.

“I think it’s time that the law and therefore the justice system is revised especially when it involves gender-based violence because women are dying,” said Yandiswa Tsipa, the deceased’s sister.

“It’s time that specific law is revised to favour especially women during this country.”
