- Dr Viwe Mtwesi tracked down the woman who ridiculed her via social media and has opened a case against her
- This follows a tweet in which the woman labelled Dr. Mtwesi a prostitute for wearing a revealing outfit
- A Johannesburg law firm has offered to represent the doctor pro bono
Dr Viwe Mtwesi was on the receiving end of a vicious attack from a cyber bully on Tuesday.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Metro FM’s Fresh Breakfast team shared photos of the cardiologist wearing a revealing outfit.
She then received flak from a tweep using the Twitter handle, Warrior Woman Elminie, who claimed the doctor looked like a prostitute.
Another tweep, Diane Redelinghuys, also responded to ask if the dress code was appropriate for a cardiologist.
Mtwesi has now hit back after tracking down the mysterious Warrior Woman Elminie.
TimesLIVE reported that she’s opened a case of crimen injuria and defamation of character.
Mtwesi said, "That woman called me a prostitute. I did not open a case because I have something against prostitutes or am judging them, she just needs to be taught a lesson about cyber bullying."
The young doctor explained that an unknown person sent her the personal details of Warrior Woman Elminie.
Mtwesi then contacted the hospital she works at as a background check and subsequently opened the case.
Briefly.co.za understands that a legal firm based in Johannesburg has offered to take on the case pro bono.
