Zozibini Tunzi, our beautiful Miss South Africa, has been touched by the focus on femicide in the country. She shared a post in which she expressed her feelings on the matter, saying she's behind the women who marched to the Cape Town CBD in protest against gender-based violence.
A few days ago, thousands of citizens flocked to the Cape Town CBD to march against gender-based violence. The protest aimed to gain the attention of President Cyril Ramaphosa and other world leaders who attended the World Economic Forum.
Reflecting on how brave South African women marched for freedom in 1956, Zozibini Tunzi, Miss SA, expressed her sadness at seeing women march again - this time for the right to live.
She is deeply upset by what's happening and said she's with these women in spirit.
Part of her post read:
"I'm right there with you in spirit zimbokodo! I'm so sorry we have to fight for a basic right."
This is the second time that Zozibini has spoken up about the plight of South African women.
Zozibini is using her title as Miss SA to help create even more awareness about the situation in Mzansi and we're proud of her.
