Media personality Tbo Touch has issued a serious warning to Mzansi women. The star joined many Mzansi celebs who have shared their views on the hot topic of human trafficking in the country.
Touch, whose real name is Thabo Molefe, has urged South African ladies to "verify" before they trust anyone on social media. The former Metro FM presenter warned tweeps that human trafficking is real. The star shared that the scourge of such cases is "getting out of hand".
"Ladies verify before you trust anyone. 3 ladies in Vanderbilpark have gone missing. Trafficking is serious, I’m in Sebokeng to help the Mguni family find their loved daughter. This BS is getting out of hand."
Many peeps, including celebs, have been using the hashtag #humantraffickingawareness this week to share their views around the scary topic.
Touch's fans have flooded his comment section to share their views on his post. Check out some of their opinions below:
"You and L'vovo have been speaking in the same voice as the public and we thank you guys for that. However, when the public marches and you guys are not there, the chances of the govt listening to us are slim to none. We need you guys, this is our only country."
"SA must continue with the fact that our borders and immigration system is a breed [sic] for mass human trafficking. We must remove the ANC and re-audit everyone who's in SA immediately."
"Bheki Cele said it's a public stunt."
"Eish these kidnappings that have been happening around Vaal have made me to even stop going to town alone."
Musician L'vovo also recently to social media to share his thoughts on the trending topic. The musician slammed the country's government for not doing enough to end the scourge of human trafficking in the country.
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Tira has taken to social media to warn Mzansi about a scammer who is pretending to be him. The imposter is using an unknown WhatsApp number to "book" women for upcoming video shoots. The scammer also promises women huge amounts of money for the shoots.
According to one of the screenshots shared by Makoya Bearings, the imposter, who has Tira's snap as his profile pic, promised one lady R4 000 per scene. He said they'll do three scenes which will add up to R12 000. Most tweeps have shared that the imposter might be a human trafficker. One tweep @bpramorula commented:
"Very serious, young girls will meet up with these bloody creeps and be trafficked. But yet people think this is funny, what a wow."
