On Thursday, murdered Tshegofatso Pule will be laid to rest and South Africans are mourning her death.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on Pule's death. The beautiful young woman was eight months pregnant when her attacker brutally stabbed and murdered her.
Pule was found stabbed and hanged from a tree in a veld in Roodepoort on Monday.
Her funeral will take place on Thursday and Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has taken it as an opportunity to condemn gender-based violence in South Africa.
The former EFF spokesperson slammed men who killed women, dubbing them "cowards."
"You must never apologise for being a woman. These people who are killing our sisters are cowards. Only a coward beats a woman, only a coward kills a woman, only a coward rapes a woman," he was filmed saying.

South Africans were left with mixed views on Ndlozi's speech. Some applauded the EFF member while others said he was using a heart-breaking situation for political gain.
Twitter user, @robzinterris, commented:
"This speech must be heard every day on Twitter so people will practice this. Well spoken from Ndlozi."
Another tweep, @proudlySAn, said:
"How did we get here! When are we going to stop EFF from using funerals for their political grandstanding. This is a shame! And we must stop it, once they realise the publicity of a funeral they jump in!"
