On 5 September, the female hosts at Gagasi FM decided to make a stand against the treatment of women in South Africa and staged a walk-out.

The walk-out was started by presenter Nonjabulo Zwane, and soon others followed her example - showing unity in their cause.

Briefly.co.za reported that Uzalo actor, Khaya Dladla, has shown support for the women, saying he is 1 000% behind them.

Since the dramatic incident, Gagasi FM has responded, saying the women - Nonjabulo, Bright Ntuli and Zisto - didn't walk off because of their treatment, but to highlight the plight of all women.

TimesLIVE reports that part of Gagasi FM's statement read as follows:

"Gagasi FM would also like to put it on record that the on-air protest today had nothing to do with the internal working environment within the station. But, it had everything to do with the continuous women abuse that we are currently witnessing around the country.
"This is no longer about an individual, and whether you are a male or female or whether your hands are clean or not. This has become an issue for all of us and it requires all of us to take a stand and say something needs to happen, and demand action."
