'Men should ask themselves, am I the next rapist?'

The scourge of femicide, human trafficking and women disappearing has led to a massive outcry in South Africa.

On Monday, the news broke that 19-year-old UCT student Uyinene Mrewetyana was brutally killed in a post office.

Many social media users started the #AmINext movement with people questioning if they will be next to be attacked or killed.

Eusebius McKaiser and callers on the 702 open line discuss the issue.

I think the #AmINext should be a hashtag for men. I am tired of talking about the victims. They have the least power in this conversation. Men should be asking themselves and their friends, am I next? Are you the next rapist? Are we going to read about you in the paper tomorrow?

It is men's responsibility to prevent these things and be a real man to ensure that he treats everyone with respect.
