Ntsiki Mazwai on why victims are usually scared to report rape

Violence against women is a serious problem in South Africa and the world. While women across the globe fall victim to physical or sexual violence every day, African women are particularly vulnerable to this regard. Controversial tweep and poet, Ntsiki Mazwai detailed how fear preys on most vulnerable rape victims.

Even for someone as vocal and woke as Ntsiki Mazwai, it takes a lot to come out. After some years, the artist and TV personality publicly let it out that, Kwaito artist Bricks raped her. At the time, the Kwaito star was on trial for raping his niece. Although many commended her for breaking the silence, others questioned her motive, asking her why is she only coming out now.

As more women continue to come out claiming some local male celebs raped them at some point, Ntsiki has seized the moment to reveal why she took long to share her story.
