Nelisa Mchunu: Please don’t ever be afraid to report a Rape case


After her character narrowly escaped being raped, Uzalo actress Nelisa Mchunu has urged fans not to be afraid to report rapists. This after, a recent episode of Uzalo saw one of Sbu’s low-life acquaintances insist that he knew that Fikile “wanted him” and proceed to try to have s.e.x with her forcefully. Fortunately, Sbu ran into the house right on time and saved Fikile.

“Unfortunately in real life we don’t have oSbu noNkunzi to bury rapists alive, so please, please don’t ever be afraid to report a rape case, rapists don’t deserve to be out in the streets terrorising women,” Nelisa said.

The actress interacted with some of her followers who shared how important it was to keep talking about the effects of rape.

Some of her fans shared their experiences with her, while others simply applauded her for being authentic in how she brought a difficult storyline to life.
