“Look we are all very disappointed and sad as we are coming out of the Women’s Month and as South Africa we are fighting against gender-based violence which is on a high. It’s unfortunate that some men are still continuing to do these sort of things despite all the attempts to stop gender-based violence. We have been seeing that all isn’t well in the relationship of this couple and we have now decided that enough is enough because the woman is severely injured,” a source told the Siya crew.
