Bok player's wife under attack on social media

Rachel Kolisi, who is married to SA rugby player Siya Kolisi, has spoken out strongly against racist trolls who have bombarded her with offensive messages on social media.

In a series of tweets on Friday, she said that it was important that she take a stand for her family and others who might be attacked for being in inter-racial relationships.

Cape Talk's Kieno Kammies spoke to her regarding her experience. She said that a similar attack had happened a couple of years ago and she and her husband had exposed those individuals at the time.

She added that the positive messages and support her family receives far outweigh the negative ones and she believes in South Africa.

Listen to the interview below:

I'm not going to engage in conversations with these people because there's no point, then it's feeding the trolls.
