“Moja LOVE prides itself on producing content that reflects the reality in our society, including social ills, and as such could not sweep the GBV incident between Thando and Siyacela under the carpet.

“In a country burdened by Gender-Based violence and Femicide, Moja Love has a responsibility to reflect and show the extent of this pandemic.”

Thando also chose not to file a lawsuit against her husband, according to the channel.

“Thando was given an option to open a case against Siyacela but she chose not to exercise that option and instead, the channel moved Thando away to a different location from Siyacela.

“Counselling was offered to Thando immediately to deal with her trauma and the channel is monitoring her progress,” reads the statement.
