Cape Town - Ministers in the security cluster are expected to face tough questions in Parliament on Tuesday over gender-based violence (GBV) and other crimes.

Ministers will face questions from fellow MPs on a range of issues.

The country has experienced a surge in the killing of women and children, and GBV has dominated the domestic agenda recently.

At the weekend four children were buried in Limpopo after their father allegedly stabbed them to death following a fight with their mother.

Police crime statistics have shown that the murder of women and children has increased.

Police Minister Bheki Cele has called for more concerted efforts by communities to work with the police to defeat violence against women and children.
