Cassper Nyovest has taken to social media to call out President Cyril Ramaphosa for doing nothing about the ongoing gender-based violence (GBV) in the country. The rapper said that words need to turn into actions.
The country is reeling after a young woman named Kwasa Zozo Lugalo, became the latest victim in suspected GBV case. The 19-year-old was allegedly killed by a man after she refused to date him.
Cassper Nyovest is livid over the treatment of women in the country. He took to social media and sent a message to the president:
"Mr President!!! The women and children in our communities are perishing at the hands of men!!! All we hear is "we need to do better" but nothing is ever done. It is not getting better !!! When will this doing better begin ? .@CyrilRamaphosa"
Social media users weighed in on the situation. Twitter user Muzi37361964 said:
"Death penalty is the only way bra"
"A life for a life"
"And he's doing nothing about it really.. We have been calling and calling for help but he doesn't want to do anything about it.. Maybe he's waiting for such to hit home first that's when he'll take an action. It's hurting nje"
"Honestly speaking, President Ramaphosa isn't the problem, and will not have a solution. The problem must come up with a solution to this. Addressing the president won't help. Abusive men need to work on themselves"

"What happened to Kwasa has me feeling sick. She tried everything. And the people who could have protected her (her ex's family, the police) didn't. She had dreams, a future, a life and it was stolen from her and I feel sick to my soul about it. #JusticeForKwasa."
Another, @modiegi_mots, added:
"Every day it’s a new name. From the bottom of my heart I’m so so tired of men. I pray she gets justice and her soul finds peace #JusticeForKwasa."
