Abusive Speech Perpetuates Rape Culture

A young man on Twitter, with the handle @Molefi_p is boldly stating that women are responsible for getting raped. In a different tweet, he further states that it is due them dressing inappropriately. He's justifying rape in a country where a significant number of communities are negatively affected by the very same mentality. It is very irresponsible for @molefi_p to tweet in that manner, especially being fully aware of how shocking the rape statistics are in South Africa.

I've reported the tweets to Twitter. If you come across the account, please report it to Twitter as harmful/abusive speech.
