A lesbian has been found murdered in Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa, according to reports by local lesbian activists.

A report that has only recently come to light suggests that Mandisa Mbambo, a 28-year-old lesbian, was found murdered under her bed.

Speaking with Identity Kenya, Funeke Soldaat a lesbian activist and founder of the Free Gender campaign organization, alleged Mbambo was murdered.

The 28-year-old was found dead at her home on Sunday (26 August).

Soldaat also observed that the deceased was found with her pants off, which leads her to suspect that rape may have been involved.

Soldaat reports that so far no arrests have been made in connection with the murder.

In addition, the activist stated that the lesbian photographer Zanele Muholi is at the scene of the crime awaiting the post-mortem report.

The suspected murder of Mbambo is the latest in a spate of murders and ‘corrective rapes’ targeting lesbians in South Africa.

In July a lesbian mother was brutally raped and murdered.

Lesbian human rights campaigner Melanie Nathan claimed the Traditional Leaders political organization were to blame for the recent violence against South African lesbians, in a recent comment piece for Gay Star News.
