[LISTEN] Bongani Bingwa: 'It's time to believe men on their sexual encounters'

Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa questions whether as society we pay enough attention to men when they hint at behaviour that could well be considered predatory or a sexual assault.

It comes in the wake of a social media campaign #MuteRKelly which follows years of allegations that the U.S. singer grooming and having sex with underage girls.

Bingwa says Kelly's lyrics have alluded to the fact he may be a predator.

This trend is deeply troubling. Even in the face of clear statements and corroborating evidence, we so often just don’t believe men when they say sexual assault is funny or locker room talk or even when they say they’ve done it. It’s time for us to start believing.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

Bingwa also zones in on comments previously made by Donald Trump on his relations with women and also those of convicted sex offender Bill Cosby.
