Women and men of all ages gathered outside local paper Sunday World's offices to hold a peaceful protest, after the publication continued to spread news of a 'fake apology' from Nampree to DJ Euphonik.

The alleged victim of the rape incident Ms. Madikizela had continuously defended herself saying she did not apologise to Euphonik neither does she have his number. In the supposed apology, Nampree seems to "admit" that she was paid by certain people to fabricate a rape story.

After being called out for photoshopping the supposed WhatsApp text, Euphonik laughed the whole incident off and made a joke about it. Whilst a livid Ms Madikizela tried to defend herself from people who texted her and called her using the number that was exposed by Euphonik.

The publication continued to publish the story and share it on their social media. This caused many social media users to drag the publication and also birthed the idea of a peaceful protest outside their premises in Dunkeld West, North of Johannesburg.   

"This morning we're in Dunkeld West, North of Johannesburg where women are staging a picket outside Sunday World offices in response to a recent article published by the paper this past weekend. #IBelieveHer group says the paper is complicit in the abuse of women."
In attendance was poet and activist Ntsiki Mazwai who dedicated most of her time voicing out her disapproval of the rape accused and showing support to rape victims at large. At the forefront with her at the #IBelieveHer movement  was DJ Fresh's ex lover Penny Lebyane and Rosie Motene.

In their poster they accuse the publication of being 'complicit in the abuse of women.' Here's what it says, "The Sunday World is complicit in the abuse of women. The paper is a big part of rape culture that creates the enabling environment. We call on the immediate resignation of Ngwako Malatji and an apology from the paper."
Ntsiki even thanked Thando Thabethe for helping Ms. Madikizela with her legal fees as she fights for justice, "Thank you Thando Thabethe for contributing to Nampree legals fees."

Thando did announce that she would be helping the woman with financial and emotional support, "Just so it is clear... I stand firmly by @nampree and should it not have been clear I am utterly Disappointed by the re-victimisation of @Nampree. I BELIEVE YOU.. Should you need any assistance emotionally or financially let it be clear I stand by you."

After being called out for not being vocal about the rape saga, Thando declared that she believes in human rights, "I recently spoke out against hate speech towards homosexual and transsexual people. I believe strongly in the rights, to respect and fair treatment, for all human beings, and I wanted to give voice to this important issue."

"I am a founder not a “face "of an organisation that has, over the years, raised almost half a million rands towards combatting violence against women and children in SA."
