South African Actress and Singer, Abigail Kubeka took a stand against gender-based violence in Orlando West today after she was involved in a collision with a taxi driver in Soweto while on her way to work, last year October. Kubeka hosted community members at her house and invited local musicians yo join her fight against abuse. She managed to escape the alleged assault by the taxi driver with only a black eye and swollen lip.
The multi-talented Veteran was invited by former Social Development Minister, Bathabile Dlamini to be part of the Stop Violence campaign after her. The campaign aims to encourage people to take a stand against abusive situations. “They choose me to be the face of the Stop Violence campaign for now because of the incident which occurred not long ago. The incident didn’t only happen to me, but it happens to many people on a daily basis. They don’t like to talk about it, but prefer to be silent,” said Kubeka.
