Suspected armed robbers kill 16-year-old girl



Sanele Msibi, who was 16 years old, was killed in Soweto, South Africa, by people who might have been armed robbers.

The robbers shot and killed the grade 11 student from Musi High School in Pimville on December 26, 2022.

Reports say that Sanele was shot twice in the head after her cell phone was stolen.

In a statement signed by Cde Machabe Mofokeng on Wednesday, December 28, the African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) said that it was saddened by how the teenager was killed.

Suspected armed thieves kill and steal the phone of a 16-year-old girl.

“The ANCYL in Mpete Mosaka Branch (Ward 22 in Pimville) is very upset and saddened by the brutal murder of young Sanele Msibi, who was robbed of her phone and then shot and killed on Christmas Day while walking with a friend in Pimville Zone 9. The girl was in the eleventh grade at Musi High School “the message said.

“This is the second time in the last two months that a young person has been killed, and we can’t live in a place where you can’t even go buy bread at a spaza shop without being robbed and killed.

“We young people in Mzansi suffer a lot because unemployment is so high, but it’s becoming clearer by the day that crime is a pandemic in the country. Every day, young women and men are killed in and around our communities.

“A few weeks ago, we remembered the 16 days of activism against violence against women and children. However, it feels like during that time, we let loose vultures who prey on our young women. So, we’re asking everyone to take this issue seriously and work to make our neighborhoods safer by forming street communities and helping our patrollers and the CPF.

“It’s also disturbing that there’s a group of people who keep trying to blame crime on a certain tribe instead of dealing with the crime itself and what causes it. Many times, they have put people in danger with their silly, premature statements, which they make to gain popularity, as if making our communities safer for everyone is a popularity contest.

“In November 2021, they were careless and gave the community to a well-armed, organized group of thugs. This led to the deaths and serious injuries of ordinary community members, and we won’t make the same mistake they did.

“We are saying that enough is enough when it comes to people dying in our community. We want the police to help us now, and we will make sure that they do.

“If the Police Minister doesn’t take off his dobbs hat and put on a beret and make sure he protects our communities, we will have to revolt, call for his head, and make sure he steps down as soon as possible for a better leader who will put South Africans and legal residents first. We dare him not to act quickly.

“In this case, the ANCYL would like to send its deepest condolences to the family of the person who died.
