- Media personality, Masechaba Ndlovu, took to social media to encourage fans to support a new initiative to fight the scourge of gender-based violence
- Masechaba believes in Not In My Name SA, boy child programme, which is set to teach the boy child and the girl child on what constitutes gender-based violence
- She believes that educating the boys from a young age will help build better societies
Media personality, Masechaba Ndlovu, is creating awareness of the movement to equip the boy child to be the solution to the current scourge of gender-based violence in the country.
Mascheba shared a video on Twitter saying it is time to raise boy children to do right in society and invited concerned South Africans to join her at Willowbrae House in Pretoria on 26 October at 9am.
She believes that if boys are taught about the effects of gender-based violence from a young age, it will decrease the scourge and provide a better society.
“Early childhood development is an optimal stage in the life of any human being and along with Not In My Name SA, we have established a boy child programme that sets to teach the boy child and the girl child on what constitutes gender-based violence.”
Masechaba added that the programme will also teach children how to be active citizens instead of being bystanders.
“I’ve pledged my allegiance to support five boy children through this programme. What’s your pitch?” said Masechaba.
According to TshisaLIVE, Masechaba previously spoke out in the fight against women abuse last year, after she faced criticism for confronting Babes Wodumo during a live radio interview on Metro FM, about claims that she was allegedly abused by her boyfriend, Mampintsha.
Babes neither denied nor confirmed the allegations at the time however the incident sparked outrage on social media which led to an intense debate. Mampintsha denied the claims.
Then earlier this year, Babes laid assault charges against Mampintsha after a video of him physically assaulting her went viral.
Mampintsha later admitted he hit Babes and apologised to the nation for his actions. The matter was referred to Families SA for mediation. However, Babes has since forgiven him and they have reunited as a couple.
Meanwhile, yesterday, Briefly.co.za reported that media personality, Masechaba Ndlovu took to social media to share the news of another break-in at her home.
Masechaba claimed that her neighbourhood is a crime hot spot and that in a period of a few months, her home was broken into again, on the same day as the last break-n about three months ago.
According to ZAlebs, the Sunday Sun reported that this time around, the burglars took a plasma TV while Masechaba, her nanny and son hid our in the bushes, inside the property.
