Mpho, a Johannesburg woman called into Xolani's show earlier this month to relay how a judge at Roodepoort Magistrate's Court dismissed her fear of returning home to her abusive partner, saying "he is not a psychiatrist, he can't solve my problem".
She obtained a restraining order after her partner hit her in December, and explained to Xolani how the same judge told her it was a civil matter.

The Department of Justice and the Commission for Gender Equality has since assisted her.
Mpho says she is in the process of finding alternative accommodation and she will hear the outcome of her case on 14 June.
