[WATCH] 'I hope it's true that hell fire exists so abusers can burn in it'

702 Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa says stories of femicide are emerging every day in South Africa and are becoming more and more horrific.

Bingwa recounted the recent incidents of abuse involving some top government officials and high profile people in the country.

We keep banging on about femicide and gender based violence in South Africa and every day it would seem there is a new story worse than the ones before. It's a nightmare that we seem unable to wake up from collectively as a society.
