#DearMrPresident @PresidencyZA @CyrilRamaphosa how many more of our women must be kidnaped, raped and killed before you take action? How many more shops must be burned before you take action? What must happen before you step in?

#DearMrPresident @CyrilRamaphosa I am tired,hurt, numb and afraid as a young woman today. I'm tired of living in fear of whether whenever I step out of my home I will come back safe and uninjured.
