Pearl Thusi's followers react to the heartbreaking post

@DjChinaRSA said:

"Sad hey! However, remember that these are reported cases and some of these cases are not real sexual assault cases. Someone wanted money in the morning and they weren't ready to pay as the terms were not discussed prior. Is sad indeed!"

"Humble request: please use your arts and talents to voice your opinions on such. I think if a collective of you (celebs) even if a small number can do that it might change the game..."

@MothomosoSeth commented:

"You consider cases which were not reported, the number must be over double this."

@truth41754416 replied:

"These are the results of not believing that women need men's protection."

South Africa's battle with abuse against women and children has been so bad that President Cyril Ramaphosa has had to take drastic measures to combat it. In 2019, EWN reported that the president stated that government would ensure perpetrators of such violence don't receive bail or parole. A list of sexual offenders was to be made public, further reported EWN.
