We’ll get through this together, Atascadero….
Eudie Simelane’s parents sit on the bridge, their image etched in her memory.
Note: This article contains references to sexual assault and violent crime.
Eudi Simelan, international footballer, coach and aspiring referee, has dedicated his life to the sport.
She was one of the first openly gay women in her neighborhood of Kwa Tema in South Africa and was a well-known LGBT+ activist.
But because of her sexuality, Simelan was brutally raped and murdered in 2008, when she was only 31 years old.
This is the story of his life and how the legacy of his death continues to affect South African society.
“She was a diamond.
Simelan was born on March 11, 1977, in Kwa-Tema, a town in Gauteng province, southeast of Johannesburg.
Her interest in soccer began when she was only four years old and she demanded that her brother Bafana always take her to practice, even though at the time it was not a sport usually played by women.
This passion soon became altruistic, as she perfected her skills daily.
“At 5 a.m. she had to be at the gym – soccer was her favorite activity and her priority,” her mother Mally recalled at a memorial conference in 2016.
Midfielder Simelan has joined her home team, the Kwa-Thema Ladies, now known as the Springs Home Sweepers, because she is left-handed.
Speaking during the 2018 World Service about Simelane’s popularity in the field, her father Hotso said, “Everyone came to the hall when she played, number 6.
Springs Home Sweepers has produced a number of stars, including Janine van Wyk, South Africa’s most played soccer player and captain of the national team, known as “Banyana Banyana”, meaning “girl”.external link
Simelan played several times for the national team, coached four local youth teams and wanted to become the first female referee in her country.
An activist for equality and social change, she was one of the first women in South Africa to declare that she was a lesbian.
According to her brother Bafana, during the Eddie Simelane 2020 Memorial Lecture, she was in touch with the outside world: “In sports, she was a diamond and scored wonderful goals. She was a great person, intelligent and all that. She was a package deal. Everything you could find in an Eudy. She was playful in her jokes and teased people. That’s what I missed about her.”
On April 27, 2008, Simelan’s body was found in a stream a few hundred meters from his home in Kwa-Tema.
She was reportedly approached after leaving a pub, raped and then stabbed multiple times.
Although her death shocked many, activists argued that many lesbians in South Africa have been targeted for “corrective rape,” a crime in which the perpetrator attempts to “cure” the victim of her sexuality by turning her into a heterosexual.
Tetho Mfuti, the external link, pleaded guilty to the rape and murder of Simelan in February 2009 and was sentenced to 32 years in prison. The following September, Themba Mvubu was also convicted of these crimes and sentenced to life in prison. Asked by journalists in the courtroom, he replied, “I have no regrets.
“It was an epiphany for many.
Eudy’s mother, Simelein Mally, fought until her death in 2019 to change the perception of LGBT+ people.
Simelan’s sexuality put her in a vulnerable position, which her mother acknowledged by saying that “all of South Africa knew that Eudie was gay.”
The sad reality is that Simelan’s story is not unique – she is one of many victims of similar heinous crimes in South Africa.
A year before their deaths, Sizakele Sigasae, an activist for women’s and gay rights, and her friend Salone Massua were huddled in front of a bar and called “tomboys.” The women were then raped, tortured and shot.
Just a few years after Simelan’s murder, Noxolo Nogwaza, a 24-year-old lesbian, was found beaten to death and stoned to death in the same township where Simelan lived.
As a country, however, South Africa has been at the forefront of the fight for gay rights and was the first African country to decriminalize same-sex relationships in 1998.
The country also legalized same-sex marriage in 2006, seven years before the law was passed in Britain and two years before Simelan’s tragic death.
Despite this, the country still has the highest incidence of rape from external causes. Domestically, it is mainly young black lesbians who are often victims of violent rape in South African cities.
According to 2017 data, 49% of black members of LGBT+ communities nationally are likely to know someone who has been killed for being LGBT+, compared to 26% of white community members.
In most cases, the perpetrators of these horrific attacks are not held accountable for their actions. external link
Human rights defenders and supporters of Eudi Simelan in August 2009 before the Delmas court in Mpumalanga, prior to the trial.
Simelan’s case was an exception. Her profile and story captivated the country and drew attention to the problem of “corrective rape.”
After Simelan’s death, her mother Mally campaigned to change her congregation’s views on homosexuality, using her Methodist faith as a platform. She worked with her local pastor, Smudz Macepe, to change attitudes towards LGBT+ people in the community. Mally was fully committed to fighting prejudice until her death in 2019.
“This has been an eye-opener for many and has prompted us to put LGBT+ issues under the microscope,” Maciepe said.
In Kwa-Tema, near the soccer field where Simelan’s body was found, a bridge was built over the stream. Her face was pressed onto the bridge and it was built “as a reminder of freedom, dignity and equality for all,” according to The Times’ Lesbian and Gay Equality Project.
Another initiative to change society’s attitudes was the Eddie Simelan Memorial Lecture. This annual conference, organized in collaboration with the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Ujamaa Center for External Communication, the Other External Communication Foundation, the Pietermaritzburg Gay and Lesbian Network, the Christian Council of KwaZulu-Natal and the Simelane family, aims to change attitudes towards LGBT+ people, particularly in some religious communities.
These organizations recognized that religious communities must adopt a new view of same-sex relationships and marriage if meaningful social change is to occur, and that there should be no attempts to use religious grounds as justification for violence against LGBT+ individuals.
Professor Charlene van der Walt of the University of KwaZulu-Natal and Deputy Director of the Ujamaa Center said this year, “The Eudy story is an example of what happens to many families and religious communities, but the issue of LGBT+ believers is often dismissed or neglected.”
The conference is also an opportunity to start conversations in the LGBT+ communities.
Van der Walt added that it is particularly important to continue this conversation during the Covid 19 pandemic, in which LGBT+ people are “vulnerable” because they are often “in a family environment that does not accept their sexuality.”
“We took a big step in the right direction,” she said.
Speaking at the 2020 conference, Bafana, Simelan’s brother, said, “History repeats itself, so this conference opens the eyes of society and other families to the fact that they should not consider it a curse that someone is gay, lesbian or transgender.
Despite Simelan’s tragic death, he became an important message throughout South Africa and served as a catalyst for these projects and conversations.
