Mzansi citizens are outraged with the state of bullying in the country and actress Ayanda Borotho is one of them. This comes after the tragic death of 15-year-old Lufuno Mavhunga, who died after apparently committing suicide because of bullying.
Taking to social media, Ayanda expressed her disappointment at the incident. She wrote a lengthy post on Instagram, talking about how parents should take responsibility for how their children treat others.
"A people hell-bent on normalising what is inhumane because that’s how every pillar of society treats them. Our children are a reflection and extension of us," said Ayanda.
The actress then spoke about how bullies are everywhere and also touched on GBV and rape. Ayanda thinks that these tragedies exist because of bullying and it should come to an end.
"To hell with boxes, let's talk about why the box exists in the first place," she said.
Ayanda says that bullying exists in the workplace as well and some children, unfortunately, are bullied by their teachers at school.
"Bullies are everywhere. They are in our workplaces posing as our bosses or heads of department telling us how useless we are, in our schools teaching children and calling them stupid, colleagues who lie and discredit our characters," said Ayanda.
