Harsher sentences for lesbian killers

Some of the lawyers in the Zoliswa Nkonyana case said they dismissed testimony from gay and lesbian representatives because it might have been biased.

Jill Henderson from the Triangle Project presented a report in the Khayelitsha Regional Court yesterday which outlined lesbian attacks in townships.

She was the state witness in the case against four men who were convicted of killing Zoliswa Nkonyana in 2006.

The Triangle Projects Marlow Valentine said that it has taken the court six years to get to this point.

She also added that on the one hand they are happy that the case will be concluded and they hope the court passes down an appropriate sentence.
