Mzansi is divided over Sjava’s court verdict as #LadyZamarMustFall trends on social media.
It has been a crazy couple of months on social media. Since Lady Zamar came out to accuse her former lover, Sjava of sexual assault, the country has been divided by it. Some have had her back, while others believe she fabricated stories against the “Linda” rapper and called her a bitter ex.
However, things got more heated following reports that the case has been dismissed in court. The aftermath of the dismissal spawned the hashtag #LadyZamarMustFall with some speaking in defence of Zamar and others against her.
Some believe that Sjava could still be guilty even though he wasn’t convicted. Others believe he is innocent and have called the “Charlotte” singer out for her accusations towards him which cost him jobs. The entire case has really divided social media users who continue to share their opinions on it. Let us know what you think about this.

Just because his case was dismissed doesn't mean he didn't do it, only him and Lady Zamar know the truth

At how the country is going with GBV on a daily, rather believe the victim by mistake first than an abuser. And I’ll stand by that until gbv is taken seriously. The women we don’t believe always end dead more often then not

This hashtag is unfortunate !the narrative around it is also concerning
At the end of the day less than 4% of all reported rape case in South Africa are due to false allegations
Many cases go unreported, lack of evidence does not equate to a false accusation#ladyzamarmustfall

Failing to prove that you were raped doesn't mean that you were not.#LadyZamarMustFall
