South Africa’s Zuma says spate of women and child murders ‘a crisis’

South African President Jacob Zuma said on Thursday that a spate of violent attacks against women and children represented a national “crisis” as he visited the family of a three-year old girl who was raped and killed. South Africa has one of the world’s highest rates of violent crime but a string of grisly murders of women and children has sparked widespread outrage, with Zuma’s visit underscoring the growing political significance of the issue.
