Cape Town – Today marks one year since the brutal rape and murder of 19-year-old UCT student Uyinene Mrwetyana.

Post Office worker Luyanda Botha, 42, was tried and convicted of the crimes and sentenced to life behind bars.
The murder took place at the Clarenreich Post Office in Claremont on August 24.

On Sunday, brightly coloured ribbons adorned the entrance of the post office and flowers were placed by a few who visited the site in remembrance of Mrwetyana.

Her rape and murder and those of several other women during the weeks prior to her killing gave rise to widespread protests and calls for President Cyril Ramaphosa to take tougher action against gender-based violence (GBV).

Although the investigation and sentencing in this case were concluded in less than three months, countless survivors and families of victims are still fighting for a semblance of justice after other, similar crimes.
