As the nation is still mourning the death of Tshegofatso Pule, rapper Boity given a piece of her mind against the increase of femicide in SA, with a strong reminder to men in the country.
On monday Tshegofatso body was found hanging from a tree in open veld in Durban Deep, Roodepoort, after she had gone missing last week. She was heavily pregnant excepting to put to bed next month.
Angered by the increasing cases of femicide in SA, Boity took to Twitter page and demanded that men should stop killing women.
In a tweet addressed to all men, Boity gave all the men a reminder that they do not have control over any woman’s body and are not superior to females.
Boity also went on to say that no woman owed any man her life, and asked men to respect it when a woman says no.
YOU DO NOT OWN OUR BODIES. YOU ARE NOT SUPERIOR BEINGS. WE DO NOT OWE YOU OUR LIVES. WE DO NOT COME FROM YOUR FUCKIN RIB. NO MEANS NO! STOP KILLING US!
The Bakae hitmaker retorted at those who were part of the “not all men brigade”, telling them to “go jump off the highest cliff”.
She also replied to those who were saying women were sitting on their beds and acting like feminists.
“Why don’t men stop raping and killing us instead of being trash and tweeting out their a** like you’re doing now?!” she told a follower.
Boity was not the only female celeb to come out guns blazing against femicide in SA. Media personality Anele Mdoda recently asked what it would take for the country to rise up.
“I wonder who our George Floyd as SA women will be. A painful death of one woman which will trigger men to go into the streets and say enough. I am saddened that a pregnant woman hung from a tree is not that moment. Maybe it too needs to be recorded . I don’t know. I’m sad.”
