In 2011, Shingange was convicted of attempted murder for the shooting as Noah’s mother miraculously survived. He said he had hoped the incident would draw public attention to the issue of domestic violence – and law enforcement’s response (or lack thereof) to it – in South Africa: “For years my mother asked the police for help with domestic violence and nothing was ever done. This is the norm in South Africa. Files were lost and the cases never went to court.”
