- A young woman took to social media to share the heartbreaking story of what happened to her
- She shared screenshots of her chat with her alleged rapist and it broke Mzansi's hearts
- The lady then revealed she tried to open a case but the cops did not help her because they felt there was not enough evidence
Thousands of South Africans took to social media to plead for the crimes against women and children to stop. Many Mzansi women shared their stories online, proving how dire the situation is.
One of these ladies is Neo Mabuya - a pretty young woman who has suffered at the hands of an entitled man.
Mabuya took to Twitter on Monday to share her heartbreaking story. The stunning young woman posted screenshots of the chat between her and the man who violated her.
In the texts, the man says he thought she was just playing hard-to-get so he took what he wanted anyway.
Mabuya revealed in another post that even though her rapist just-about admitted to the crime, the police refused to help because of a lack of evidence.
She captioned the post:
"I was raped. The dude admitted on text that he had violated me. I reported it, the same cops withdrew my case because “it wasn’t strong enough”. What a joke!"
Mabuya is not alone - according to the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation (CSVR), South Africa has the world’s highest rate of rape.
Briefly.co.za learned that there were an estimated 138 rapes per 100 000 women in 2017. Aside from the high sexual assault statistics, W24 reported an average of three women are killed by a man in Mzansi daily.
So, yes Mr President, South Africa is experiencing a dark time and something needs to be done.
