The annual commemoration of 16 days of activism against gender-based violence began on November 25 and runs until 10 December.

This week True Crime South Africa dedicates its Spotlight minisode to crimes of this nature.

Included in the discussion is the unsolved murder of Mandy Silva, who was found brutally beaten and strangled to death in her home in 2015.

There’s also an update in the murder case of Jesse Hess and her grandfather, Chris Lategan.
