A tale of two women, and two races and one police force
Reading Time: 0 min
A photo of a male South African police officer posing for a photo with a white woman stripped to the skin has caused an intense debate on social media in South Africa.
This comes as Gugulethu Ncube, a Zimbabwean woman based in South Africa, was pinned to the ground, arrested and charged with public indecency for disrobing during her protests against alleged sexual harassment.
Some South Africans have demanded to know why the white woman in question was not handcuffed and dragged onto the back of a van as happened to Gugu on Wednesday.
The date and circumstances of the white woman’s photo could not be ascertained, but she seemed to have been in a protest of some sort, considering the insignia on her body.
