By Athandile Siyo Feb 15, Cape Town — In yet another gruesome attack on women in the country, Gugulethu residents are reeling in shock after the naked body of year-old Sandisiwe Bhuqa was found in a passageway in the Kanana informal settlement yesterday. Her murder comes as Free State police are searching for the husband of Lesedi FM's current affairs anchor, Dimakatso Ratselane, who was stabbed multiple times and left for dead in Mangaung on Wednesday. Bhuqa, 31, appears to have been injured multiple times. Police said they were investigating whether she was raped because she was found only wearing underwear.

The majority went to South America and the Caribbean. E uropean vessels took goods to Africa, where they were exchanged for slaves. The ships then sailed to the Americas to trade slaves for agricultural products - extracted by slave labor - which were sold in Europe after the return journey. The journey between Africa and the Americas, "The Middle Passage," could take four to six weeks, but the average lasted between two and three months.
