CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- A young Nyanga woman has been shot dead in her home in front of her mother and 6-year-old niece – because she was a lesbian, a gender group believes.
Phumeza Nkolonzi was shot three times by a gunman who kicked down the door to her Mau Mau, Nyanga, home and, without saying a word, fired at her on Saturday evening. She was 22 and open about being lesbian. The gunman is not known to the family.
The motive remains unclear, but lesbian and gang lobby group Free Gender believes Nkolonzi was shot because she was a lesbian.
