The past few months have been heavy for South Africans, the number of women killed increased. Many women lost their lives in the past few months.
Domestic violence is not something new in this country, South Africa is slowly becoming a very unsafe place for women, be it in the streets and sadly for some it is in their homes.
The violence doesn't stop, women are killed everyday, even for the smallest things. Some are killed by jealous ex-lovers for moving on to their next partners.
Their only crime is leaving a relationship that they feel that they do not want to be in anymore. A week doesn't simply end without social media trending a woman's name, a woman who was killed by a man.
The latest victim is a young woman named Thembani Mbali Jele, a police reservist from Soweto. She was sadly killed together with her boyfriend by her ex-boyfriend.
The ex-boyfriend who is a taxi driver shot and killed Thembani and her current boyfriend together in a car. He later drove home and committed suicide.
May Their Souls Rest In Peace.
