SA faces an an epidemic of sexual violence perpetuated against women. Studies show rape victims do not report the crime for a number of reasons, including stigma and distrust in the police. When cases are reported, sexual assault victims are often failed by law enforcement and the legal system. This was the case for 52-year-old Margeret Mulaudzi, from Thohoyandou, Venda. Mulaudzi was raped in her home earleir this year, but has not seen justice served after an inadequate investigation and the closure of her case.
