Remember This Young Lady- Raped And Killed By Her Own Boyfriend

The rate of gender based violence and femicide in this country is alarming. Everyday we hear stories of woman who are abused by their partners, with many of them ending up dead. In my opinion that is one too many.

The young lady was bludgeoned to death with a hammer and stuffed into a bin bag before being left at the door of her boyfriends shack.

Sinathi Magqazana (23) from Marikana informal settlement near Hermanus was allegedly forced by the boyfriend to go with him the night before her death. He hit her and forced her to go with him. This is according to a friend who tried to fight him off but could not. She said he returned the next morning carrying a hammer and crying.

A rape charge has been added to the murder charge and damage to property charge.

The 24 year old boyfriend, Khanyile Ramba had abandoned his bail.
