Police Criticised Over LGBT Rights

A lesbian rape survivor and community activist has told the Khayelitsha probe into police inefficiency how insensitive officers added to her ordeal

A lesbian rape survivor and community activist has told the Khayelitsha probe into police inefficiency how insensitive officers added to her ordeal.

When prominent lesbian community activist Funeka Soldaat was raped by some boys from Khayelitsha in 1995, she turned to the South African Police Service for help.

Yet this week she told the Khayelitsha commission of inquiry into police inefficiency that her torment had continued at two police stations, where her treatment after the attack left her devastated.
