Ntsiki Mazwai on being ready to stand with victims of rape and gender-based violence (GBV)



Ntsiki Mazwai has shared that she has a stance in supporting rape victims and gender-based violence (GBV).

Taking to Twitter, she said she is ready to support anyone victimize even if she is wrong at the end of the day.

Ntsiki recently took to Twitter to explain the logic behind her “unconditional” support towards victims.

“I believe all victims because I’d rather be wrong than subject someone to secondary victimisation after being raped,” she said

Many of her fans started to share their views concerning the matter as one tweep asked: “Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?”

Responding to that, Ntsiki said for her the concept of “innocent until proven guilty” didn’t apply when the crime was rape.

“Not with rape,” Ntsiki replied.

“We always have to believe the victims first because women are more vulnerable to being raped. We have to start from the basis of believing her. And move from there, ” the poet said in another tweet.
