The Aids and Gay rights activists warn neither law enforcement officials nor the justice system is doing enough to stem homophobic violence.Members of the Triangle Project have expressed their outrage, following several postponements in the trial of 9 alleged killers.

The case was due to have started yesterday after being postponed on Friday, but it has once again been postponed - this time to the 4th September.The men are accused of murdering a teenage girl in Khayelitsha more than 2 years ago, reportedly because of her sexual orientation.19-year-old Zoliswa Nkonyana was stabbed, kicked and beaten to death by a mob.

Triangle project director, Venessa Ludwig, says “this case has been going on for more than a year and if we recall Zoliswaw Nkonyana was killed on 4 February 2006,one wonders when the family and friends who also victims will get justice,right now the is a constant postponement because the defence is never ready.”
