These three queer men were killed in the most violent ways and Mzansi is still grappling to understand, why. According to reports from various news sites, Spokgoane was stabbed multiple times on his chest. Lulu was said to have been butchered then set alight. The man who killed him buried his body parts in his home. Lastly, Sphamandla was stabbed then buried in a ditch.
Somizi joins the fight in protecting the rights of homosexuals and he has taken further steps by visiting the family of Andile Ntutela. He shared a picture of him in front of his home in Gqeberha and said he would be returning there on June 1, for the court hearing.

"Flew to Gqeberha this morning to give support to the family of the brutally murdered member of our LGBTIQ+ fam LULU...I'll be back on the 1st June for the court hearing...#riplulu #ripspha #spokgoane #justiceforlulu," he tweeted.
His husband Mohale also added his voice and asked when will the killings stop? He posted a statement from The Gay and Lesbian Alliance of South Africa (GLASA), who is calling for “harsher sentencing, the prioritization of LGBTQAI+ hate crimes and stricter legislation that will ensure that the LGBTQIA+ communities particularly in the townships and rural areas enjoy their constitutional freedom of equal opportunities, justice, and rights.”

Another death which rocked the country was of 15-year-old Lufuno Mavhungu who was beaten and bullied by another scholar. The 15-year-old Limpopo scholar allegedly took her own life by overdosed on prescription pills.
