Cape Town – Anthea Thopps' cousin, while thanking President Cyril Ramphosa for his speech last week in assuring South Africans that strong action would be taken against gender-based violence perpetrators, added that "we will await action".
Alluding to Thopps' murder suspect's court appearance on social media, she would have been disappointed about what transpired on Thursday – as is often the case.
Thopps was killed on July 21 and her family has been struggling to come to terms with her death, especially her 3-year-old son.
Their pain has been made worse by the murder case of the suspect, Jacobus Plaatjies, being delayed until next month.
The 35-year-old Plaatjies, who is believed to be a family friend, faces charges of murder, rape, housebreaking and theft.
