The alarming number of murders and rapes of women and children has evoked strong reactions from various members of our society, especially the recent murder of University of Cape Town (UCT) student, Uyinene Mrwetyana.

Upon reports of her death, many local celebrities took to social media and expressed their views on the murder of Uyinene and the general safety of women and children in South Africa.

One such celebrity is rapper and television presenter, Boity Thulo. The Own Your Thrown hit-maker posted a very daring and provocative tweet whereby she did not mince her words regarding the government's dragging and nonchalant approach to the safety of women and children in SA.

Boity also mentioned that, rapists, murderers and abusers seem to get the lighter hand of the law or even a free pass, whilst the same leniency is hardly given to women.


This daring move from Boity sparks a moment when award winning rapper, AKA stated that South African artists are wary of not being too political in their artistry or general commentary because their work opportunities might be cut to zero.

This was after a question was put to him regarding artists' freedom of speech on popular American radio show, Sway In the Morning in the year 2016.

These are just some of the reactions from the streets of Twitter:

Whilst most celebrities would prefer a more conservative approach to calling out our government - mostly fearing opportunities being blocked from them. We are yet to see how the government will react to Boity.
