A video of a Zodwa Wabantu being touched between the legs is doing the rounds on social media, raising the issue of sexual assault on the last day of Women’s Month.
Zodwa has previously spoken about her fans groping her in 2019, saying “these are my fans, there was no abuse whatsoever, and no harm was done.”
The socialite and dancer had set tongues wagging earlier this year after a video of a fan kissing her booty did the rounds. Many on social media have weighed in on finding the man’s actions disrespectful, and Zodwa can be seen pushing the man away with a smile on her face.
Zodwa is known for getting close to her fans during her performances but the fan’s actions where he touches her between the legs was not received well.

nothing about that video of Zodwa Wabantu being sexually assaulted is funny or okay. it does not matter that Zodwa is a sexually liberated woman, wears revealing clothing, you do not have the right to touch people in their private areas EVER.

Zodwa is clearly trying to push that man away on the video, and some of y’alls argument is that she’s doing it with a smile.
Umuntu wes’fazane akathintwa maningavumelananga. Kushuthi anizwa emadlebeni.

Just because Zodwa laughed that off, it doesn’t mean that guy didn’t violate her.

Zodwa hasn’t responded to the video but many of her fans are calling for the man in question to be named and shamed.
We a long way from ending the GBV scourge. What that dude did to Zodwa is disgusting. pic.twitter.com/Nu4gHIH29I
