Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa has thanked gender based violence activists for supporting her at the Randburg Magistrates court recently. The actress opened a case against her ex-husband Black Coffee this year after accusing him of physically assaulting her at her birthday party which was held at their marital home.
Apparently, the abuse started in 2014 and according to Enhle, it has been downhill from there. Now, the actress is taking a stand and not only is she using her voice, but she is helping other women use theirs. Gender based violence has caused many women to lose their lives and Enhle is fighting this pandemic itself.
She has announced that she is the ambassador of the Winnie Mandela Cup for 2021, which fights all things abuse against women and children. “I’m so proud and filled with joy to announce I am the ambassador of the @winnie_mandela_cup2021. I pledge to in my personal life and career to stand up against GBV. Pledge to be a Minnie Winnie in the fight, as that’s what the cup stands for.”

The tournament which will take place soon aims at raising awareness about the cause and also a virtual concert will be taking place in April.
Today, Enhle posted a footage from the GBV activists protesting outside the Randburg court, showing their support to her. “God, thank you,” she wrote and the video shows people holding placards which read “Enough is Enough,” and “We believe you.”
