There will be a march in Katutura this evening to express sympathy for the family of the latest victim of violence, as well as to show solidarity against acts of this nature.
Melanie Booysen (20) died after her throat was slit with broken glass, allegedly by her boyfriend, at a birthday celebration on Saturday for the couple's four-year-old daughter.
Tonight's march will start from Hans Dietrich Street (behind the Penduka Bar), and will proceed to the victim's house in Hawaii Street.
Those who have their own transport and can assist with transporting participants, and those who need transport, should meet us at Zoo Park at 17h30 (5.30 p.m.). Those who are closer to Katutura can meet up at the Penduka Bar in Golgota.
"This is a peaceful walk to firstly show our deepest sympathy to the family, and secondly to show societal solidarity on this incident," one of the organisers said.
"The media will be present as well as the police. We are expected to conduct ourselves in an orderly fashion and to be on time. Please spread the word."
Those taking part are asked to please bring along candles and flowers. The flowers will be laid at the entrance of the victim's house.
"We will appreciate as many people as possible attending," the organisers said.
