A student of Rhodes University in South Africa Khensani Maseko has committed suicide over what the SRC of the school stated could be because of her rape incident.
According to the SRC they are yet to come to terms with the passing of one of their own and that she passed away at her family home in Johannesburg on Friday afternoon.
A student who spoke on the behalf of the SRC, Nhlakanipho Mahlangu stated that Maseko who was a third year BA student at the institution might have committed the act because she was raped in May this year.
Nhlakanipho Mahlangu stated “We know the amount of promise she had to offer us all, I mean to offer the entire country. We’re very shaken, it’s a very difficult time for us as the SRC and we wish her family all the strength and support that we can.”
