Bonang Matheba expresses her strong objection to racial segregation

Sometimes, she is going to surprise her masses by actually speaking out on a topical and grave matter on social media, but consistently she has made it a part of the brand to let her silence do the talking.

Hence, imagine the surprise that the Twitter streets had when the entertainer and businesswoman finally did discuss gender-based-violence (GBV), well quite. The comment comes off the rear of the criticism that a number of our faves like Cassper Nyovest, Nasty C, Pearl Thusi, and AKA had all gotten their quite their justifiable share of backlash from tweeps for allegedly being vocal about the continental crisis, but not local issues.

But because Bonang is currently the one that arguably reigns supreme in South African entertainment, when she spoke she received more love than backlash. Bonang was commenting on the topical story of a popular nightclub, Black Door, being raided by the South African Police Service within the early hours of the morning. The raid was thanks to the club having did not consider level 1 restrictions and allegedly failing to supply a liquor license.

The raid was a full-on media punt with the Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, and another top officialdom present for the raid. During the lockdown in South Africa the SAPS, led by Bheki Cele has had a no-nonsense stance on alcohol. and through the first stages of the local in Mzansi, there have been stringent rules that governed alcohol and cigarettes. An energy that was and isn’t as equally invested in fighting the intense and erosive matter of GBV.

So during a series of tweets, Bonang joined the social media discourse of South Africa’s misplaced specializes in issues like alcohol and curfews, versus the shortage of efforts taken to curb very serious issues like GBV and human trafficking. Currently, South Africa is placed together with the hotspots of human trafficking within the world. However, the govt has not said a word on the matter, including has the police shown concerted effort in attempting to deal with the matter.

Moreover, with a number of local celebrities speaking on the Nigerian and Congo situations, the govt has not shared any word on the matter. to form matters worse, South Africa’s President is additionally the Chairperson of the African Union but still no word from his office.
