Sexual violence, Anene Booysens and the ANCWL

Is enough really enough when it comes to sexual violence for the ANCWL?

Yesterday, the ANC Women’s League released a statement on the gang-rape and murder of Anene Booysen calling on all South Africans to stand together and unite against rape.

Disillusioned by the continued trade in and exchange of the dead and mutilated bodies of poor Black womyn by institutions of power as they seek to gain traction and currency where they had none before (and I don’t mean to single out the ANCWL, here – the DA’s own Lindiwe Mazibuko met the same, if not worse, opposition for same) I took on the ANCWL’s spokeswoman, Troy Martens on twitter.

This is the first only part of the exchange.*
