Zozibini Tunzi shows support to Caster Semenya as she gets banned from competing



Zozibini Tunzi has decided to add her voice to the banning of Caster Semenya from competing as an athlete.

Caster voiced out against it in partnership with LUX brand.

Taking to Instagram, Zozi stated that policing over women’s bodies has become a norm.

She went on to say that people want to tell women who they are and what they should be.

The star went on to slam people as Caster’s issue breaks her heart as she gets banned because she was born with hyperandrogenism which is believed to aid her speed

Zozi captioned: “The policing over women’s bodies, the boxing us and stripping away of our autonomy has become a norm. It seems like everyone wants to tell us who we are or who we should be. Women are not just one thing. We are multi-faceted! We come come in all shapes, shades and sizes. It breaks my heart that Caster Semenya has been banned from competing on the 800m race at the 2021 Olympics because someone else has decided her womanhood for her. I want to play my part rallying behind not only @castersemenya800m but other women who are to come after her.  #IStandWithCaster and if you do to, join myself and Lux on this wonderful campaign by signing the petition.
