DA councillor in the Ugu North area, Leonard Ngcobo says the community is living in fear.

"There is a possibility of a serial killer because the manner in which these young women are killed, seems to be the same or they are similar. 

"They are found to have multiple stab wounds and also the postmortem report reveals that they were also raped and further to that they are dumped in the same place, in the same sugarcane field," says Ngcobo.
