- Somizi Mhlongo has expressed that he is not happy about the latest Caster Semenya testosterone ruling by Switzerland's Federal Supreme Court
- Somizi took to social media to show his support for Semenya, who is the current 800-metre Olympic champion
- Somizi's fans are also not happy that Semenya has lost her appeal against last year's Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) ruling
Somizi has taken to social media to share that he is not happy that Switzerland's Federal Supreme Court has dismissed Caster Semenya's appeal against last year's Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling.
The CAS had ruled that the Olympic champion would have to take testosterone-reducing drugs in order to compete in races between 400m and a mile.
The reality TV star shared a collage of Caster and Jarmila Kratochvílová, who ran 800 metres in 1:53.28 seconds in 1983. He captioned his post:
Somizi and his fans have asked whether Kratochvílová was ever subjected to all the tests that Caster has had to go through. Check out some of the comments from shook social media users below:
"You can say that again, I think we need human rights lawyers to step up here. Trans people can race with women but a person born a woman is called too much of a woman to race with women."
"This is so unfair."
"Till when shall we suffer?"
"This is sad."
"And she looks more like a man."
"@somizi you can say it again, white privilege period."
The New York Times reports that the latest ruling appears to have nixed any chance for Caster, who has natural testosterone levels far above the standard female range, to defend her title in her signature event at the Tokyo Olympics next summer.
In other entertainment news, Briefly.co.za reported that Kabza De Small has hinted that he wants to drop another project. The Amapiano music producer recently took to social media to ask his fans if he should drop the new project or wait for a while.
The musician surprised many people in Mzansi when he dropped a new album with a whopping 27 tracks on June 26. Now the hard-working self-proclaimed King of Amapiano wants to release another project. Mzansi tweeps have flooded his comment section with mixed reactions since he posted about the new project on Monday, 8 September.
Many social media users have shared that he must wait a bit because they're still enjoying the last project, titled I Am The King Of Amapiano: Sweet and Dust. One of his surprised fans @NiisoShabangu wrote:
"Ay khona sesikathele loya (no, we're tired), 27 tracks was enough for the rest of the year, namanje asikayiqedi (we haven't finished listening to it)."
