- Taking to social media with a powerful post, Unathi explained how keeping quiet does no good and how the silence is piercing
- Unathi's followers took to the comment section to second what she said and to express their concerns
Unathi Nkayi, like many other South Africans, is tired of men being complacent when it comes to gender-based violence. Some believe that choosing to say nothing is just as bad as committing the act.
Gender-based violence is a huge problem in Mzansi and something that many feel is not being given the attention it deserves. Unathi has spoken out many times on the issue and refuses to keep quiet about it until action is taken.
Taking to social media, Uanthi let the men who are protecting other men know that they are as guilty as the perpetrators themselves. The silence these men are emitting is piercing!
Unathi went in hard and reminded these men that women close to them, maybe even their daughters, could be faced with violent men. Facts like these hit hard.
“This spoke to me in both ways......there are so many AMAZING men I know.......and many not so AMAZING. BUT allow me to keep it to ONE specific theme.......Your SILENCE is so LOUD.”
Unathi reminded those keeping quiet that nothing good comes from it.
“So as I leave you with the reminder that BAD things happen when good people keep quiet.”
People took to the comment section to second what Unathi has said and to urge people to break the silence and take a stand.
@lemadphoto: “Your silence will not protect you.”
@asylummashaba: “Amen, how I pray for my daughter to marry a man and husband like me sis Unathi.”
@yhooleeswa: “Very powerful statement.”
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Unathi has slammed the pastor who recently condemned women for participating in the #JohnVuliGateChallenge. The media personality took to social media this week to react to Pastor Jadezweni after he claimed that women were enticing men by dancing seductively to the trending song titled John Vuli Gate.
Unathi shared that she has also participated in the trending challenge. The Idols SA judge shared a video on Instagram where she spoke out about issues affecting women in Mzansi.
"A video that was trending last week of Umfundisi who was basically scolding us, women who actually love John Vuli Gate. It doesn’t matter if we agree or not, we are supposed to disagree and we are allowed to disagree."
