It's reported that 38 year old Abanique Cunningham and her two children — four year old Sanique Coote and seven year old Jayanna Coote -- were chopped to death.
Minister Grange said it was a "tragedy" and a "most horrific case of gender-based violence which I condemn in the strongest sense of the word."
According to the Minister this latest incident brings into focus the importance of efforts to eliminate gender-based violence and to transform the ways in which we bring about a change in how women are perceived.
"Governmental action is vital to prevent and end gender violence, but success requires people speaking up. I note that the police have made an arrest in this case, and I encourage anyone with any information that can assist in this case to make a report to the police," the Minister said.
