Many have spoken out in the last days of South African’s darkest days as incident of xenophobia attacks, murder, rape, kidnapping among other against foreign nationals and women are coming of light.
South Africa is currently at the centre of the world, not embodied with any good news but the adverse of it.
The South African government has made a statement on Twitter but people are still not happy about it, including its own citizens.
“Govt joins SA in the anger against the abuse of #UyineneMrwetyana. Violence against women and girls is a grave violation of human rights, and we are calling on law enforcement agencies to ensure the wheels of justice are turned in this case…
It is worrying that violence, rape and abuse seem to have become so common and govt is sounding the clarion call to all SAfricans to fight this deeply-rooted scourge. Govt is also calling on men to lead the change we want to see in our society. The voices of men are critical in the fight against violence and abuse as they have the power to put an end to abuse, assault, rape and domestic violence against women and children.” The statement by the South African Government read.
Boitumelo Thulo is one among many who is not happy with the government. Thulo is a is a South African television personality, rapper, actress, businesswoman and model.
Boitumelo tweeted; “All of you Government SA do not give a f***k about the women of the country. Nothing,”
She added; “We are dying daily and it continues because men have been shown and know very well that our government supports and protects rapists, abusers, and murderers”.
More might be going on in South Africa that isn’t out there yet. We hope and pray for all as the African continent goes through this tough times.
