The Commission for Gender
Equality says the death of hip-hop artist Nkululeko “Flabba” Habedi brings the
spotlight on the issues of gender based violence particularly intimate partner
Habedi was stabbed to death at
his home in Alexandra on Monday morning, allegedly by his girlfriend Sindisiwe
She was arrested on the same
day and appeared in court on Tuesday and charged with murder.
CGE Spokesperson Javu Baloyi said
it cannot be when people have conflict they solve it in a violent manner.
Baloyi said this is not a good
example to the youth of South Africa who will assume that violence is the only answer.
“The commission calls upon
like-minded institutions to come together to ensure that issues like this won’t
occur again by sorting it out in the correct manner rather than resorting to
violence” Baloyi added.
