“The head of the Free State department of health, Dr. David Motau, has expressed concern over the photos of Dimakatso Ratselane that have been widely distributed on social media platforms”, said spokesperson Mondli Mvambi.
Ratselane’s husband was now a wanted man, with the incident drawing widespread condemnation in a country plagued by incidents of violence against women and children.
Meanwhile, the SABC has committed to providing Ratselane with the necessary support as she fights for her life in the hospital.
The public broadcaster said it would continue to heighten vigilance on gender-based violence.
SABC spokesperson Moni Seapelo said: “The SABC remains an important institution for empowering citizens with valuable information to create awareness regarding various social ills, including the intractable gender-based violence. The SABC is committed to continue playing its critical role in heightening citizen vigilance and consciousness on this matter.”
