Yvonne Chaka Chaka has shown love to Caster Semenya as she continues to battle for fair and equal rights. Caster has made Mzansi proud on so many levels and there are so many standing behind her in this battle.
The Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland has denied Caster Semenya's appeal to take part in certain international Olympic races. Last year, the Court of Arbitration for Sports ruled that Caster could no longer take part in 800m and 1 500m events due to her high levels of testosterone.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Yvonne Chaka Chaka, like many others, supports Caster in her fight to be able to compete in female races despite her high levels of testosterone.
It was decided by the court that Caster could only take part in the sport should she undergo a medical procedure or undertake medication that would help lower her elevated testosterone levels. Caster has however refused to take any steps to lower her testosterone levels, stating that she will not allow these setbacks to change who she is.
Yvonne Chaka Chaka took to social media with a snap of herself and Caster to show Caster some love and support during her battle. Caster will forever be one of Mzansi’s greatest sporting heroes!
Briefly.co.za previously reported that veteran songstress and songwriter Yvonne Chaka Chaka has challenged artists from all over the world to help each other amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Umqombothi hitmaker took to Instagram to urge her peers in the creative industry to assist artists who are struggling financially due to the coronavirus lockdown in most parts of the world.
The singer said she understands that most creatives are going through a tough time because they can't make money during these trying times as lockdown regulations don't allow artists to go out and perform.
