Justice for Nosipho Mandleleni

Nosipho Mandleleni, 24, was found dead at the house that she and her boyfriend, ANC Youth League leader for Yeoville, Patrick Wisani, were staying in. Nosipho was beaten to death with a sjambok and bled to death on the bedroom floor.

In this video, Sonke Gender Justice tells the story behind the advocacy that drove Judge Ismail Mohammad to sentence Wisani to 20 years behind bars. In emotional interviews, Nosipho’s twin sister – Siphokazi – opens up about the abuse she experienced and witnessed being done to her sister leading up to her murder.

The journey of a young sex-worker, who was severely assaulted – is explored while addressing the issue of gender-based violence.
