Following the death of Lufuno Mavhunga, a South African student who committed suicide after being bullied at school, the hashtag “Justice for Lunofo” is trending on Twitter. Lunofo was seen crying while being humiliated by her classmates in a short video that surfaced on the internet prior to her death.
Lunofo was seen in the video attempting to explain something to the girls she was surrounded by, but as she tried to articulate herself, another female student emerged from the crowd and slapped Lunofo in the face several times as the other students laughed.
Lunofo is thought to have committed suicide as a result of the abuse.
Lunofo’s family has turned to the public for help in getting justice for their daughter. Lunofo was thought to be a smart and loving girl who didn’t talk much, according to friends and relatives. She often takes pictures that she posts on Facebook with her peers.
