Pistorius bail: S.Africa’s ANC Women’s League disappointed

Johannesburg – The Women’s League of South Africa’s ruling ANC party said it was disappointed that a court on Friday granted Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius bail in a case of alleged murdering his girlfriend.

“For now we will abide by the rules of law in this country but honestly we are saddened because women are being killed in this country,” said ANC Women’s league spokeswoman Jacqui Mofokeng.

The league had staged protests outside the Pretoria court during the bail hearing.

The league said Pistorius had been receiving preferential treatment because of his fame and holding banners reading “Rot in jail.” (Reuters/NAN)
