- Zinhle reached out to show support to Caster on social media
- Caster was denied the chance to appeal the IAAF's ruling and she refuses to let that stop her
- Fans took to the comment section of Zinhle's post to show their support too
When women stand together, the world becomes stronger. DJ Zinhle has taken the time to show her support to South Africa's champion, Caster Semenya.
Semenya recently lost a bid to challenge IAAF rules forcing female athletes to regulate their testosterone levels. This means that she will not be allowed to compete as a woman anymore.
Briefly.co.za has seen how the people of Mzansi have rallied behind Semenya in this battle, and it is refreshing to see celebs like Zinhle do the same.
Zinhle took to social media with a picture of Semenya and captioned it with a short but powerful statement. No matter what the IAAF does or says, Semenya will forever be our champion!
Fans took to the comment section to show their support too. Here are just a few of the heart-warming comments made by social media users:
@patricksizane: "If they can't take the ownership of your success they try by all means to discredit you" Matha Mokgadi ❤
