The South Point community is deeply saddened by the recent and seemingly endless spate of violence against women and children. The events of the last week and, in particular, the rape and murder of UCT student Uyinene Mrwetyana has weighed on us heavily, as it has directly affected the student community about whom South Point cares so much, are passionate about and to whom we have committed our lives. We are deeply hurt because we ‘know’ the thousands of young ladies who, like Nene, arrive at our residences from all parts of this country with the light, energy, passion and ideas that this country needs to nurture and encourage – among our most special gifts as a nation, but also our most vulnerable. Nene, like so many young women, entered university with an untainted vision to change the trajectory of a country (and world) that seems to have clearly lost its soul, conscience and, ultimately, its way. Instead of cherishing and cultivating these souls and minds, we have put out yet another bright light forever. RIP Uyinene. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
Safety remains a top priority across all South Point buildings nationwide and we will continue to work hard to promote safe communities in our buildings and neighbourhoods.
