"It's the cult members under this tweet commenting 'I forgive you' and 'apology accepted' for me. It's scary that they don't see anything wrong with this."

Kamo said:

"No, Julius Malema. Not with women. Rebuke yourselves. Women are burdened as it is, and now one has to publicly apologise for being a human and a mother?"

Khanyi Magubane said:

"A mother having to apologise for rushing to attend to her sick daughter above anything and everything smacks of chauvinism at its highest level."

Thabiso Tshabalala said:

"But the apology could have just been internal. No need to make it public. Talk about a toxic environment."

Raisibe said:

"I pray that one day, you will be free."
