GBV organisation was appalled by man's alleged action

Bulelwa Adonis from Women For Change spoke to Briefly News and expressed how shocked the organisation was.

"We are deeply mortified. This is yet another story that exemplifies the disgusting reality of what life looks like in this country as a woman. There needs to be some sort of safety protocol implemented that humanizes those who enforce the law. This story is a reminder that your job description doesn't exempt anyone from Gender-Based Violence. Simply being a woman has been proven time and time again that there are no safe spaces in which one can let one's guard down."
