Maps Maponyane

Maps wants government to declare gender-based violence a state of emergency. He said “there are only so many times women can be called to wear black” and tough action is needed.

“Rape & femicide is commonplace in our society, the question has now become “Who’s next?” That should be enough to make anyone sick. There has to be something that we can actively do, especially us as men. What? I don’t know anymore, but the solution has nothing to do with women,” he tweeted.

Cassper Nyovest

Cassper said that he was “disturbed” by recent stories of femicide and xenophobia in the country.

“There’s so much going on. I don’t even know where to start but my country, it’s women and children are disappearing by the day. Our fellow African brothers are being killed and some people are justifying it. It’s scary, sad and it’s wrong. Something needs to happen.”

AKA

AKA said that he feared the type of world his daughter would grow up in.

“As the father of a little girl, I’m terrified to raise my baby in this country,” he tweeted.

Reason

Is my daughter next? Is my sister next? Is my lady next? Those are the questions Reason asked on Twitter after a sad week for women in SA. He vowed to reach out to SA’s leaders to address femicide and xenophobia.

“I’m done with Twitter. We are not doing anything here but arguing. I’m reaching out to leaders who can do something now. If you wanna help me help my people, then Let me know.”
