He also announced an emergency plan to curb the rising assaults. However, it does not seem like his actions are having enough effect.

She was thought to be missing until the police discovered her body one week later.

There have been calls for a stricter punishment like death penalty in South Africa. The hashtag #AmINext is also trending on social media.

This hashtag is being used to emphasize the frequency of the attacks and how South African women are in a vulnerable position.
