RIP| She was too young, didn't deserve to die like that

South Africa has a high rate of femicide, far higher than the global average. To compound matters, the prevalence of femicide is increasing; the number of women killed this year is even higher.

Every four hours, a lady is murdered. Women in South Africa are not safe; the unfortunate reality is that this country is rapidly deteriorating as a dangerous place for women to live.

Domestic violence and femicide are more likely to occur when a woman is murdered by someone she knows, someone who is supposed to protect her.

Gender-based violence has deteriorated to the point where it has become a secondary epidemic. Each week, social media trends feature a lady who has been a victim of femicide.

Asiphe Mdodana, a young 23-year-old woman from Bizana in the Eastern Cape, was tragically found slain.

Asiphe was raped and stabbed, and her body was recovered in a backroom covered in stab wounds, according to KEEPTHEENERGY.

She was far too young, with the rest of her life ahead of her. She truly did not deserve to die in that manner.

Rest In Peace, Her Soul.
