In a report that came out in 2017, it was reported that women and children in South Africa were the most vulnerable globally.  According to a 2016 statistic report, 52 985 cases of sexual crimes against women and children were reported.

And with the court case of Karabo Mokoena, who was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend currently underway, the debate about gender-based violence has been a topic of discussion throughout recent weeks. 

Mzansi Magic's The Queen has also been inclusive within this debate as Kea's situation with her fiance'  Tebogo, escalated to unfathomable proportions last night when Tebogo beat Kea to a pulp.


Initially, there have been previous episodes of Tebogo physically assaulting Kea, but those scenes were not as hectic as last night's one.

As Tebogo continuously threw punches, blow for blow, viewers of the local show were reminded of their own family experiences and how personal the scene resonated with their own domestic abuse experiences.

The scene was also a reflection of the many women in the country who are currently going through such torment.

Whilst many hope that this scene will not desensitize the plight of women in abusive relationships.

Dineo Moeketsi [who plays the character of Kea] was thankful for all those who were part of this emotionally taxing scene and acknowledged that the aftermath of this scene was going to affect a lot of people were going to watch it.
