Ngaa Murombedzi from advocacy group Women and Men Against Child Abuse said it was happy there has been progress in Palesa’s case even though it’s been too long.
“We want our justice system, which is put in place to determine how society can be protected from crime to be effective. The circumstances around Palesa’s death are gross and details around it need to be made clear. We want justice to prevail for her young life was taken away and for her family to get closure,” said Murombedzi.
On how the criminal justice system can be strengthened, she said it is important that the rights of perpetrators are not prioritised over the rights of victims.
