9 Mar

Anene died 1 February 2013. She was raped, mutilated, disemboweled, had a broken bottle stuck into her and was left for dead.

She was 17 years old.

The trial of two arrested suspects is still to start.

Anene indicated that 6 /8 men were involved.

Since Anene’s callous and brutal murder South Africa seems to be more willing to deal with Violence Against Women.

International media had also paid attention to Anene’s death but I still have to follow up whether Interntional Women’s Day organizers and structures honoured her in any way.

Following Anene there was Reeva Steenkamp who died at the hands of Blade Runner Oscar Pistorius. This case hit the headlines across the world because Oscar is famous.

Although Reeva was a model and a rising star, she herself had little attention.

Women are societal sacrifices. They are sacrificed as cogs in the wheel of a patriachial syste.
