The Sunday Independent - - METRO -

LAST week, we re­ported in an ar­ti­cle, “A vic­tim of a bi­ased crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tem”, that the woman who pulled up her skirt re­veal­ing scars suf­fered as a re­sult of gen­der-based vi­o­lence was Martha Marumo. This is in­cor­rect.

The woman who pulled up her skirt in front of an au­di­ence that in­cluded Pres­i­dent Cyril Ramaphosa was Phindile Ncube. Marumo de­liv­ered a tes­ti­mony at the sum­mit, but never lifted her skirt.

The Sun­day In­de­pen­dent would like to apol­o­gise to Marumo for the em­bar­rass­ment this has caused her and her fam­ily. | Act­ing edi­tor
