WATCH: Local celebrity says he hates being a South African man

Musician Kabomo shared a video expressing how he hates being a South African man because of what it means to women. 


Every day when you look at your social media feed, you see reports of women being abducted, raped or killed in South Africa, and these crimes are committed by South African men.

There's no doubt that any woman in South Africa is generally afraid to be around strange men or sometimes the men she already knows. If a woman finds herself alone in the streets with no money, taking a lift from a stranger or even walking alone is not something she can consider.
