Silenced

As revolutionary as South Africa’s constitution is, certain loopholes still exist in wording of the law in our land. One loophole is gender determination in the legal definition of rape. Male South African’s cannot be raped. Through the devastating recollections of a victim, Tsimong boldly ventures into the subject of male rape that continues to be shrouded in taboo and stigma in our society.
