The case against Norma, on charges of malicious damage to property and crimen injuria, has been postponed to September 14.

The matter is predicted to be transferred to the regional court because the quantity of injury allegedly caused by her is quite R100,000.

As the incident sparked debate on social media, Sonia took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the matter. She said that while Norma’s actions might not add up to most of the people, she understood where she was coming from.

“It might not add up to some, but it is sensible to us. once I say ‘us’, I’m a lecture and about women who are through the most! Women who have had to seem sane to those who’ve never been tested nor tried!”

The actress made it clear that she wasn’t supporting any criminal or illegal actions, but explained that supported personal experience, she knows how it feels when one has got to “stand on their own”.

“Listen I’m not condoning anyone, anything, or any behavior. But I do know I had to face on my very own when all I needed and wanted was for somebody to ‘see me’! Not only my struggles or my faults but also my pain,” she said.
