Why voluptuous women should embrace their body shape

Body loathing can take a toll on one's mental and physical health.

Body activist Nomalungelo Mkhize shares her experience - the emotional abuse as well as depression she suffered growing up.

Mkhize joined Azania Mosaka on the line to tell her story and how to approve of and love your body with all its imperfections.
