Sithelo Shozi Joins Women For Change South Africa.
Sithelo Shozi has announced that she will be partnering with gender-based violence (GBV) NGO Women For Change South Africa. Weeks after revealing that she was a victim of domestic abuse, allegedly at the hands of ex-boyfriend Andile Mpisane.
The Durban DJ stunned her audience when she admitted to having physically and emotionally assaulted while dating the chairman of Royal AM. Sithelo claims that after one beating, she even miscarried her unborn child.
Several celebrities, like Amanda du Pont, Mihlali Ndamase, Monique Muller, and Ntando Duma, praised the brave and audacious attitude. But Andile Mpisane’s family, notably his mother Shauwn “MaMkhize” Makhize, who owns Royal AM, and sister Sbahle Mpisane, who disputed her assertions, have also criticized the celebrity. Sithelo said on her Instagram Stories that she had exciting plans for Women’s Month.
She posted: “Not just Women’s day, but Women’s Month. Dedicating my August to raising awareness and assisting every voice that needs to be heard. Let nobody silence you, your story is valid and no abuser or enabler has power over you.
“I’ve partnered up with a few organisations and am so excited to make the change we all wish to see”
Despite the criticism and reports by Andile Mpisane calling her “violent and aggressive”, Sithelo has stood by her claims.
Last week, the muso revealed that she was trying to distance her two children from the drama. She tweeted following criticism by Sbahle Mpisane: “Then you wonder why I try so hard to protect my kids from this”.
Sithelo also asserted that her children lacked a “father” and extended family. This came after Andile Mpisane’s legal team openly urged a paternity test. Not just Sithelo observed the beginning of Women’s Month. In addition, Amanda du Pont, who accused her ex-boyfriend Molemo Maarohanye nicknamed Jub Jub of abusing and raping her, advised her followers.
