[LISTEN] 'We owe our abusers no loyalty'
The scourge of gender-based violence in South Africa continues to highlight the need for more interventions and possibly harsher measures from government to prevent these crimes.
Putting the issue in the spotlight once again, Azania Mosaka sat down with R&B singer Busisiwe 'CiCi' Thwala and Tracey Going for this year's 702 Imbokodo event - a platform for women from all walks of life, coming together to inspire and empower other women and society into action.
Thwala and Going shared their stories on surviving abuse and why they refuse to mention their perpetrators by name.
