I am dismayed to learn of the "unintended" public release of personal information of eight victims of a rape that occurred in July 2022 in Krugersdorp. The release of the personal information aggravates the deep wounds caused by the attack and exposes the women to more risks. The lifetime wounds caused by the attack on these women will now be made worse by the reckless act of releasing their personal information, which included their names and addresses. There is no justification that can make such a negligent act understandable or acceptable. The leadership of the South African Police Service (SAPS) must ensure consequence management and urgently put measures in place to ensure that this does not happen again.
