Twitter Divided Over Masechaba Ndlovu Exposing Babes Wodumo’s Abuse. The two ladies are currently trending on social media. Masechaba Ndlovu revealed, during Metro FM’s Drive Time radio show, that Babes Wodumo was being allegedly abused by her then boyfriend, singer Mampintsha. Babes was caught off guard and when asked about the abuse she was dumbfounded and said she does not want to talk about it.
Twitter was shocked by the revelations, and some were not happy about how they felt the show’s hosts ‘ambushed’ the star. Some however felt Masechaba did the right thing by trying to curb woman abuse in the country.
We are nothing in these men’s eyes. Kanti senzeni? We are not your punching bags. Babes 💔 Uxolo Sisi. We need to be more outraged about this. A simple hashtag #Menaretrash is not enough!!

The way the revelation happened wasn’t ideal, and I have reservations about it -BUT now we know, Mampintsha physically, emotionally and financially abused Babes. He needs to be subjected to aaaaall the social censure, confronted about his abusive BS, deal with the law, etc etc…

Y'all are weird. Do you prefer the truth post #BabesWodumo's death or now? Yhu kunzima. Masechaba ambushed her, not okay, but thank God she did. Maybe we should be focusing on finding out if Babes is in a place of safety now?

She didn’t, now shut the fuck up! Babes said numerous times that she didn’t want to talk about it. She expressed how she didn’t want to be in “the papers”. Fuck Mampintsha, fuck you & fuck everyone else who further victimised that girl today! She didn’t want it out! https://t.co/VfNS4hZp2Q

In a country with unacceptably high incidents of femicide, some people are attacking @MasechabaNdlovu for exposing Mampintsha's abuse meted out against BABES? How many more women must die at the hands of men just because it's not our place to call monsters out? Kahleni bo!

Everything is making me sad. Everyone controls Babes. Everyone talks over her. Everyone speaks for her. Everyone is in her space. I'm so so sad.

Masechaba put her Job on the line to save Babes Wodumo. To me that’s a power of a black woman. To me that’s a voice of a black woman that can’t be shaken. It might not be her story to share about abuse but we don’t have time to write stories. We focusing on saving our sisters…

The fact that Babes waited to get to the bathroom before she started crying just shows that she really isn’t trying to share anything with anyone. That interview was so sad. I really hope she won’t be in more danger.

Only Babes can decide if Masechaba was right or not.
Sometimes in the silence, victims are dying inside and hoping somebody could fight for them as they do not have the resilience to do it for or by themselves.
