ctivists have had to lock their Twitter accounts cos you’re sending everyone lawyers to try hide what can no longer be hidden, says poet Ntsiki Mazwai!
“Suzifihla Ngam mglengulwi (Correction: Mdlwenguli – don’t hide with me, rapist,” wrote Ntsiki Mazwai.
Ntsiki also said that every time this “person” trends, she gets bullied by his lawyers.
In July 2020 DJ Fresh, real name Thato Sikwane filed a court application against Ntsiki Mazwai to take down social media posts that name him as a rapist.
Without mentioning DJ Fresh, Ntsiki Mazwai continued to say: “You can’t punish me any longer… It’s game over for you. Even if you kill me… It’s game over for you.”
Ntsiki Mazwai says that the best justice system is time.
“Bullying me will lead to your downfall…” Ntsiki Mazwai.
She also took a jab at all the activists that “do magazine covers” and Gender-Based-Violence gigs “were” most silent on matters concerning what they stand against. “I do the work and create the hype… Then, they take the credit,” says Ntsiki Mazwai.
“Being bullied is giving rise to a voice I never knew I had. There more bullying behind the scenes… The louder I get about rape,” says Ntsiki.
The Citizen (early this month) reports that judgment in the matter between DJ Fresh and Ntsiki has been reserved in the High Court, while the application by radio host Penny Lebyane to join in on the matter was thrown out of court.
According to the publication, in DJ Fresh’s application, Ntsiki claimed that Penny Lebyane was the “original poster” of a tweet that insinuated that he is an alleged rapist. Mazwai reshared the post on her Twitter page, resulting in the current legal spat.
DJ Fresh stated in his founding affidavit, that he thought he was on cordial terms with Ntsiki and was unaware that she was “harbouring any animosity towards” him.
