Anele Mdoda has poured her heart out on social media about the plight of women in South Africa.

The opinionated media personality has expressed her sadness at the brutal death of Tshegofatso Pule.

Tshegofatso, who was eight months pregnant, was found hanging from a tree with stab wounds in a veld in Roodepoort this week.

Her death has caused an uproar on social media with peeps demanding justice for her using the hashtags #JusticeForTshegofatsoPule and #TshegofatsoPule.

Anele wondered who their George Floyd as South African women would be.

Floyd, an African American, recently died at the hands of white police and his death triggered nationwide protests in the US with demonstrators demanding justice for him.

The protests were against police brutality, inequality and injustices in the US.

Anele tweeted:

"I wonder who our George Floyd as South African women will be. A brutal death of one woman where even men will hit the streets and say enough. I am sad that a pregnant woman hanged from a tree is not that moment."

Floyd's death was caught on camera. A white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes and that incident was caught on camera.

Mzansi celebs, including Trevor Noah and Minnie Dlamini, added their views to the Black Lives Matter movement and spoke up against police brutality and injustices following Floyd's death.

Anele suggested that maybe Mzansi women needed to witness one of their own being murdered on camera in order to take action against women abuse in the country.

"Maybe it too needs to be caught on camera. I don't know. I'm sad."

Briefly.co.za reported Veteran actor Menzi Ngubane also joined Mzansi peeps who have been demanding justice for Tshegofatso.

Menzi has encouraged men to respect women following the incident.
