Uyinene Mrwetyana, a 19-year-old university student, was raped and killed on August 24, 2019. A makeshift memorial was erected in front of the Clareinch Post Office in the Claremont suburb of Cape Town on September 4, and people have paid tribute to Mrwetyana with flower bouquets, condolence messages, and ribbons. The young woman's murder has made a big impact in South Africa, leading to protests against gender-based violence in the country.

  5. I like the fact that she seems to have some control over some of her activities, and that the Crown supports her on causes that are personally significant to her.
    Well done 💔💔💔💔💔

    1. After years of browsing this blog I have never felt inclined to post a comment until now. Human sympathy and compassion is not a finite resource - taking part in a small ceremony as an act of remembrance for a women who was raped and murdered in no way diminishes the suffering of every other person and living creature on the planet. JC can I ask what you are personally doing to alleviate the suffering of those around you? I gather not much - too occupied typing away petty little comments online is my guess. Reading between the lines your comment has less to do with the cause the DOS chose to support on this occasion, but rather the colour of the person who is the subject of this tragic event.

    2. CG, I couldn't have been more eloquent 👏👏👏👏 I struggle to understand why people instead of applauding acts of kindness, they come up with... well what about so and so? If I donate to to an animal charity, people say what about children, If I donate toward children, people say what about, abused women, climate change, literacy, hunger,and the list goes on. How difficult is to understand that 1 person cannot change the world, and being emphatic toward one cause doesn't mean that you aren't towards others.
      It would be so good if we all did a little thing everyday to make a difference, instead of criticizing others.
      So JC, maybe you should spare a thought for brutally raped and killed women, maybe?
