- Rami Chuene has slammed a gender-based violence (GBV) critic who has called for a five-day prayer
- Rami said she will not participate in the five-day fast aimed at ending the scourge of GBV in Mzansi
- The tweep said women should not wear weaves or use make-up during the five-day period
Rami Chuene has slammed a gender-based violence critic who called for a five-day prayer to remedy the situation. The tweep called on Mzansi women to fast for five days and expressed that they should not use make-up or weaves during the fasting period in order to end GBV.
The issue of GBV has been a hot topic on social media since Mzansi went into lockdown a few months ago. Many women have died at the hands of men amid the Covid-19 lockdown.
The Isono actress took to Twitter and told the critic, @gugupetunia, that she will not participate in this. The star replied to the tweep:
"No. No amount of Esther, Ruth, Naomi, Sarah and Mary, not even the badasses Delilah, Sapphira, Jezebel and mother of deception, Eve will get me participating in this. Everything has been taken from women. Everything! How then are we okay to take even the nothing that’s left?"
Rami had previously told President Cyril Ramaphosa that the country cannot hide men's behaviour behind alcohol abuse. She said men commit gender-based violence even when they are sober.
"We can’t hide men’s behavior behind alcohol abuse. Men kill in season and out of season, they kill day and night, they kill when drunk and when sober, they kill pushed and totally unprovoked. Men kill, period my President @CyrilRamaphosa #LockdownSA."
Tweep @pfhedz replied to Rami:
"I hear you , but come up with solutions to help prevent this nonsense. We can blame men for years, but we need urgent solutions because surely this is a societal issue more than a police matter. Losing our sisters in this manner is heartbreaking and must be stopped by both females and men."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that the fame monster has gotten hold of Lasizwe Dambuza. The reality TV star has taken to social media to share that he is heartbroken. The star even went on to ask Mzansi to pray for him.
Lasizwe's last posts on his verified Twitter and Instagram accounts on Tuesday night, 15 September have shook many social media users. The bubbly personality shared that he has lost his true authentic self and has become fake.
He said the prayers from Mzansi would really help him deal with what he is currently going through.
"I’ve lost my true authentic self! I have became fake and plastic! The fame monster has gotten a hold of me! What you can do for me is to pray for me! Honestly please pray for me! It would really help!"
Following his surprise post, the flamboyant media personality also shared that he is deleting all his social media accounts with "immediate effect". Lasizwe has not posted anything since.
