Recently, the broadcasting of the recent missing person’s alert of 19-year-old UCT student, Uyinene Mrwetyana has caught the attention of the nation. The student was last seen at a post office. The University of Cape Town has also announced that it has hired two private investigators that shall work alongside the private investigator that was hired by her family.
Author and former YouTuber, Khaya Dlanga also recalls that one of his friends was also kidnapped in a taxi last week. “A friend of mine was kidnapped in a taxi in PE lastweek. The three men took her phone, laptop, wallet, demanded her pin and withdrew money. Fortunately that was all they did. I hate the fact that I consider that as fortunate. Women are in danger,” says Khaya Dlanga. The author also went on to speak about the #bringNenehome trend. “So when I see these #bringNenehome I can’t but also think about what could have also happened to my friend. Women live in constant and ever present fear. I pray that Nene May be found unharmed. Because I am getting scared and worried for her and other women,” says Khaya Dlanga.
Tweeps commented on the matter. One tweep says, “I insist on my partner checking in with me wherever she goes…just a simple, arrived safely…Some may see this as controlling but that’s how bad things are in this country.” One tweep says, “It’s sickening! Women are not safe ANYWHERE! In Ubers, in Taxis, on the streets, ANYWHERE. You always let out such sigh of relief and gratefulness each time you make it home hassle free and safe as a woman. A Scary reality.”
