Surely there are women in South Africa who wish they had been born a different gender so that they don't have to live in fear of being killed everywhere they are, at home, at work, everywhere they are, they just have to keep looking over their shoulders to see if they are being followed by strangers, when they are at home they fear to be in an argument with their partners because it might end in a bloodbath.
Gender-based violence is on the rise in this nation, and we see it in the headlines and on the news nearly every day, like the 27-year-old Buhle Xaba, who was brutally murdered in the forest of KwaZulu-Natal.
"There was a gunshot wound to the head on the body of Buhle Xaba, 27, from Newcastle in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. There has been no more word from the authorities on her death or an arrest "According to the magazine,
In many cases, women are brutally murdered by their partners, husbands, or boyfriends, and in most cases, the problem they are having is too much for one to handle and they decide to kill the other instead of seeking help. Talking about it saves lives, and if it is not fixable, a breakup is always a solution and people move on.
