Briefly.co.za reported that Ramaphosa had travelled to the family's Limpopo home to pay his respects and denounce gender-based violence:
"As men, we seem to have declared outright war against the women of SA. It is a national shame that a young woman who had a promising future had her life cut short by a man who killed her so brutally and slaughtered her like an animal."
Ramaphosa had called for prisoners to face the harshest labour during their time in jail in the wake of the escalating crimes against women:
"All these people, once arrested and sent to jail, they should be subjected to harsh labour because what they subject communities and families to is worse."
