As gender-based violence (GBV) continues to form South African women sleep in fear, actress Rami Chuene quickly packs up a tweep who suggested women needed to participate in “fasting” for God to listen to their cry and end GBV.

Rami, who has made it no secret that she believes in God, named female Bible characters when she dismissed the thought that for GBV to prevent in Mzansi, women had to fast and pray it away.

The tweep who poked Rami and lots of other women tweeted: “SA woman, may I humbly request that we couple these GBV protests with a five-day fast from September 21 to 25. No makeup, no weave (Esther 4:16). May God hear our cry and heal our country.”

Rami made it clear the solution for her, and lots of her followers was a firm “no”.

“No. No amount of Esther, Ruth, Naomi, Sarah, and Mary, not even the badasses Delilah, Sapphira, Jezebel, and mother of deception, Eve, will get me participating during this .”

Rami women had nothing else of themselves to give to fight the attackmen have launched against them in the form of GBV. She said she was personally not okay with sacrificing the little to nothing she has after giving everything.

“Everything has been taken from women. Everything! How then are we okay to take even the nothing that’s left?”

Rami wasn’t the only one who thought the “fast for five days” approach was outrageous. Actress Bonnie Mbuli was one of many other women who felt the same.
