Exploring GBV In Mzansi: Ayanda Borotho Snaps Role In “Every Day Is Halloween”

Isibaya actress Ayanda Borotho has snapped another acting role, in a flick titled Every Day is Halloween.

The message of the flick is that in South Africa, Every Day is Halloween for women. In other words, many women in Mzansi have several horror stories to tell daily as they navigate life and relationships.

Every Day is Halloween brings to the fore, once again, the issue of gender-based violence (GBV). South Africa ranks very high in GBV, with ladies being raped and murdered almost daily.

The head or marketing at MultiChoice South Africa, Thabisa Mkhwanaz, confirmed this, stating that the show was meant to showcase the reality of most women in South Africa.

Ayanda Bortho played the role of a woman who’s locked in her home. She’s seen looking out through the window, consumed by a sense of danger. According to her, violence is experienced both in public and private spaces.

Outside the home, women are harassed and hunted and even separated from their children, according to her.

By the way, proceeds from the film will go to the Uyinene Foundation. The word out there is that peeps can watch the flick without having a Dstv at home. They can also make donations to the cause against GBV.
