The Plight of women in S.A

26 February 2013, 11:01
The rape and murder cases in South Africa have escalated above any normal being’s imagination that it has become a norm in our society. This scourge of abnormality is ripping our country apart and it has portrayed this beautiful landscape to the world as one of the most dangerous places to live in, hence we find people emigrating to other countries.

Our children and women alike are living in constant fear of abuse and constant harassment from someone invading their privacy without any sense of guilty or remorse. It is sad that we find the faces of victims being exposed throughout the media whilst the perpetrators hide their faces in courtrooms running away from the public. Our Judicial System should deliberately expose the profiles of perpetrators for public scrutiny in order that it is difficult for them to enter our society.

The face of Anene in the Western Cape has been on public display ever since she was brutally murdered, whilst the perpetrators sit in courtroom hiding their faces. The country should be made aware of such immoral acts and that the faces of perpetrators of gruesome crimes should not be hidden to the media in order that it is difficult for them to continue with their escapades. A 20yr old in the Eastern Cape has committed nine (9) cases of rape and one of attempted murder and he was given “bail” for raping a teenager.


On what grounds should such a man receive sympathy from the state, whilst the victim has to endure pain and suffering and continually live in fear because her accused is out on bail. It is time that our country put its priority in order and in favour of the victims not the other way round, and this all depends on our elect Mr. Jeff Radebe to stand out for the victims in all our society and introduce the "Bill of exposure".
