Yesterday Saturday May 20th, South Africans took to the streets to match in protest against rising cases of rape and murder arising from domestic violence. A spate of rapes and murder cases involving lovers has shocked its citizens in recent weeks.
Meet two beautiful girls who were found murdered recently. The girl on the left was murdered by her ex boyfriend, a man who once told her that he loved her. On the right is another young girl who was raped and murdered. The girls 28 and 24, were found dead one with gunshot wounds.
One woman has taken to her social media to plead with South Africans to not just treat rape and murder as a regular death.
Read her heartrending letter to netizens.
