- Nomzamo Mbatha has apologised for posing with Arthur Mafokate
- She has reiterated her stance against gender based violence
- The TV personality has applauded Arthur’s accuser Cici for speaking out
Nomzamo has issued a public apology after coming under fire for posing for a picture with Arthur Mafokate at the ANC manifesto launch over the weekend. The statement was issued on Monday afternoon.
Briefly.co.za reported that the actress got herself into hot water when she posed for the snap. South Africans were not impressed, many felt Nomzamo should not have been seen with Arthur because she's meant to be against the things he is accused of.
The ongoing assault case against Arthur laid against him by his ex-girlfriend and singer, Busisiwe "Cici" Twala has put the musician in a negative light with South Africans.
Following the outcry, the TV personality has reiterated her stance against gender-based violence.
"I apologise unreservedly for that and want to reassure the public and my supporters that I firmly oppose abuse of any kind. My heart broke when Cici came out with her story of abuse. I applaud and encourage her for speaking out"
It seems South Africans have become very unforgiving to alleged abusers and have taken a serious stance on boycotting all accused of gender based violence.
Good on you, Mzansi.
