Veteran actress Florence Masebe is not one to
shy away from issues she feels passionate about. The actress recently revealed
that her childhood abuser was protected by her relatives.
The actress was not reticent to say she
doesn’t pity him at all. Instead, she was ready to go get herself a new dress.
“The paedophile uncle that violated me from
the age of 11 and got protected by relatives including his mother and wife has
stage 4 cancer. I do not feel an ounce of sadness. Instead, I want to go
shopping to pick the best dress [sic],” she said.
Florence has been at the forefront about
issues of sexual harassment. She’s been challenging everyone to take a stand
against this mistreatment of women.
When the #MeToo movement started in America,

We’d ask if it was an affair gone sour. We’d violate them again,” she told The
