It hasn't been an easy decision and I am very aware of the serious journey we are embarking on and it is a journey that is, unfortunately, very prejudicial to survivors of rape.

During her interview on The Eusebius McKaiser Show, Ferguson urged other other victims to step forward.

READ: Jennifer Ferguson: I found it impossible to speak out about the rape

This whole area of intimate relationships and where violations and misconduct occurred, is very, very difficult to legislate. It's the kind of grey area of our lives. So I am very aware that according to the criminal courts, the State has got to prove beyond a reason of doubt. What we have really is my story and Jordaan's story.
