Lesbian murder: two in court

February 26, 2010

Two men accused of raping and killing a KwaZulu-Natal lesbian in what her family and activists believe was a homophobic attack are expected to appear in court today.

Thokozani Qwabe's naked body was found in a field in Ezakheni township, Ladysmith, three years ago. She had multiple head wounds and her clothes were found discarded several metres from her body.

The two suspects were arrested late last year and were due to appear at the Ezakheni Magistrate's Court today for their bail application.
