One Twitter user wrote: “Uyinene’s spirit is not allowing anyone to view her as another static.. Her spirit is fighting”…And aren’t those words true?
Uyinene Mrwetyana is still on almost everyone’s lips, following the reports that she was rap3d and murdered by 42 year old Luyanda Botha. The University of Cape Town(UCT) student was coerced into the Chareinch post office where she was found dead.
Uyinene’s death has seemingly spawned a trail of other women in South Africa, that have endured similar sxual ordeals. Various unidentified women have come out in droves and fearlessly called out the men who have previously sxually assaulted them.
Some of these perpetrators include a large number of well known celebrities.
Yesterday, ZAlebs reported on three well known celebrities who are alleged to have drugged and rap3d various women. These celebs include, Sipho ‘Psyfo’ Ngwenya, DA LES and Tshego Koke.
Riding on the wave of exposing rapists in our society. A twitter account, @DBN_Survivor is the recent portal whereby women who are victims of sxual abuse have anonymously sent through their stories to be publicly posted through this account.
Below are just some of the celebrities who are facing allegations of sxual assault from an array of women.
- Award winning Kwaito star, Lvovo Derrango: The KZN born musician allegedly forced himself on a woman after wrestling her for over 20 minutes. The woman alleged that she eventually gave in after losing the energy to continue fighting him off.
- Pastor Sthembiso Zondo:
A few women came forth and told their stories – respectively. One woman shared how he allegedly insulted her before having his way with her.
- Felix Hlophe: The renowned radio jock and comedian has also been mentioned on the list. The lady alleged that it was during DJ Black Coffee’s tour in Durban where Felix had tricked her into going home with him for an after party of some sort.
Other celebrities who face allegations of sxual assault include:
Danger from Big Nuz.
None of the claims have been confirmed as true and the Twitter accounts have been reported for defamation of character.
We hope these well known celebs come forward soon and squash the rumours. We also hope the women find the closure they seek.
