Ukufa kuse mbizeni. In English: The death is inside the pot. A Xhosa idiom meaning that the source of the problem is within us and it is enough.


We need to break the silence about the rape which has been happening for many years.

JUSTICE, it’s about time, it’s enough

It is like a fire that destroys many lives which is countless.

Even in our history Sarah Baartman was one of the victims of rape.

It is enough!!!

Sinoxolo Mafevuka was killed

And the perpetrators are unknown .

The evidence was washed away by water. No DNA was found because of the lack of evidence.

We need to stand up!!!
