“I am alive,” Gogo Skhotheni says after escaping her abuser


Gogo Skhotheni suffers abuse from an unidentified person

Gogo Skhotheni is a victim of abuse, but she’s decided to keep her abuser secret.

The South African DJ took to her Instagram stories to talk about surviving an abuse.

The sangoma said she would have posted photos to reveal the scars on her face, but because of her kids, she didn’t.

However, she is grateful to God for being alive.

“Abuse is a drug you end up normalising, but again, thank God I am alive.”

“I won’t post my face or the scars I had. I have kids to protect, but I am okay,” she added.

Skhotheni further revealed that two of her phones were damaged during the abuse; she also shared the coversation she had with her abuser.

Despite expressing herself and opening up about the issue, the traditional healer was mute about the abuser.

“Being in the public eye sometimes is hard when you want to speak about such you have to think twice because wow I have seen other ladies being dragged for such,” she said.

Gogo Skhotheni has a husband, whose name is Monde Shange; the two separated for months, but she confirmed their reunion this year.

Meanwhile, the couple have a 2-year-old son, who has been hospitalised for years.
