Estimated reading time: 3 minute(s)

Social media divided over punishment on gender based violence when some say men seem to be most punished even when they are victims of violence.

This was sparked by recent post on twitter where it was alleged that a young man was stabbed twice and killed by her girlfriend and yet none of the activists seems to be advocating for the girlfriend to also face the mighty hand of the law.

The victim, 22 years old Vuyo Mbena, whose Facebook name is Vierra Thadde was allegedly in a relationship with the suspect Kaybee, 20 years old who later on posted on social media that she never intended to kill Vuyo.


“It was a mistake” she said.

The sad news also captured attention of hip hop artist Cassper Nyovest who sent out an “RIP” message.
