Lerato Sengadi has joined a list of Mzansi stars who have spoken out against femicide.
Lerato took to social media to share that women have a better chance of surviving Covid-19 than being killed by a man.
The brutal murder of Tshegofatso Pule has triggered a huge outcry across all social media platforms.
Tshegofatso was found hanging from a tree with stab wounds in a veld in Roodepoort on Monday. She was eight months pregnant.
Lerato, who was recently declared the legal wife of late rapper HHP, lambasted government for not doing enough to find a solution to the increasing scourge of gender based violence.
She asked why government banned the sale of cigarettes when women were more likely to die at the hands of men than Covid-19.
"Why are cigarettes even an issue if we are more likely to die at the hands of an animal? Just let us women drink, smoke, not wear masks, brunch and so on because we have a better chance of surviving Covid-19 than this sh*t!"
The star said she had no intentions of marching because previous marches against femicide did not solve anything.
"I have no intention of marching. I’ve said that there’s really no point anymore because we've been doing that . We have to find a way to shut this b*t*h down! And the only way to do that is economically. Whether it’s a coordinated stay away and so on."

She complained that government has not eve issued a statement regarding the recent killings of women in Mzansi.
"Statement on GBV? Cigarettes and 'saliva on the paper' are way more important. On the scale of pressing issues we are at the pits, the bottom, the gutter, the drain."
Briefly.co.za has reported that Hulisani Ravele penned a touching message to President Cyril Ramaphosa following the spate of brutal murders of women in South Africa. The radio and TV personality said Mzansi men are not okay and described them as "demons".
