WOMEN and kids in Mzansi get killed daily.

Akasia cops are concerned about increased gender-based violence and femicide incidents despite there being awareness.

A woman was recently shot and killed by a lover, who later turned the gun on himself. The incident took place in the Park Crescent Complex in Orchards, north of Tshwane, on Wednesday.

Photos and videos of the incident circulated on social media: the couple can be seen lying in a pool of blood.

He gasps while people take videos.

“They transported the boyfriend for medical attention at a nearby hospital, where he succumbed to the injuries on arrival.”
“He shot himself in the head and shot the woman on the body. I’m not sure if the face is also shot. He’s dying. He must die – minus one problem,” says a man recording the video.
