The death of a 23-year-old student, who killed herself two months after she was allegedly raped has renewed anger over sexual violence against women in South Africa.

Khensani Maseko, a student at the Rhodes University in Grahamstown, said she was raped by another student in May.

On August 3, the day she took her own life, Maseko posted a cryptic message on Instagram.

“No one deserves to be raped,” she wrote with a picture showing what is believed to be her date of birth and that day’s date.
Maseko’s account has since been removed from Instagram.

However, Rhodes University confirmed her death and said authorities held a meeting with Maseko’s parents after she reported in July that she had been raped.

The university says it was agreed that Maseko should be taken home pending an investigation into her allegations.
The third-year student died a few days before her scheduled return to the university, where she was to meet with those investigating the case at the institution.

Meanwhile, the University revealed in a statement that the man accused of the rape has been suspended, adding that it was working with South Africa’s police and the National Prosecuting Authority to launch an inquest into Maseko’s death.
Police have not released the suspect’s name.
