South Africa’s Fallen Angels: List Honouring Females Murdered in SA

By Jenni Baxter and Cindy September

The loving list of names below represents the beautiful souls of women and girls who have tragically been murdered in South Africa. The list was begun by Cindy September on the group SA Women Fight Back, and from today will be hosted on this dedicated page on SAPeople. If someone you love was killed in SA and you would like their name to be honoured below, please send it to Cindy (details at bottom of page).

Image created by SAPeople from a list started by Cindy September: “In honour of all our Fallen Angels #sawomenfightback #thelistoffallenangels #bethechange #stopcrime #stophurtingourwomen #sapeople 🇿🇦🌍”

It is hoped that this list – which was started after the brutal murder of Meghan Cremer in Cape Town – will send a stark visual message to the nation, and to President Cyril Ramaphosa that enough is enough. It is time to make South Africa a safe land for females to live in. And for men and boys. For all South Africans and their visitors.

Cindy September has poured her heart and soul into this long, heartbreaking list. At the time of publishing, the list stood at 285 names… names which have been sent to Cindy by mothers, daughters, friends and grandchildren who wish to stand together for a safer future in honour of their loved ones who lost their tomorrows. (Update: the list now stands at 403 names.)

Let’s do it for the unnamed women who are murdered by their husbands and boyfriends, the very people who promised to love and honour them. Let’s do it for the many many citizens who lose their lives in farm attacks.

Let’s do it for our friends and family who have lost parents and siblings to horrendous crimes

Let’s do it for the good men who have been beaten and killed innocently. Men like Peter Dodds, Tony and Amaru Vienna, Bob Gawler, Tolstoy Schoeman, Mr Venter.

Let’s do it for our mothers, sisters, daughters, cousins, nieces, children..

Give me names and I’ll add it to the list of women and children we need to do this for.

*Please look through the list before sending through names as I get the same names more than once and it makes it difficult for me to keep up.

They will NEVER be forgotten. Their screams will be heard through our voices.
