Ukhozi FM Presenter Reaches Out To Rape Survivors

Ukhozi FM’s presenter Zandile “Zeal” Dladla, who was raped eight years ago, wants to focus on motivating other rape survivors while going through the process of healing.
Dladla, who presents her show Fakumoya on Saturday from 10pm to 2am, said the rape attack on her eight years ago happened while deejaying at a university whose identity she would not reveal.
While speaking to Sowetan, DJ Zeal said to avoid being a permanent rape victim, she decided to speak out about it a few years ago.
“The thing about rape is that whenever it happens you start blaming yourself, asking questions like… what was I doing there? If I had not gone there this would have not happened,” Dladla said.
“As the non-profit organization we work with young people in the township and we try to empower them with all the information. I speak to them about gender-based violence, the importance of treating each other equally and encourage self-love and self-respect,” she said.
The presenter, who has worked for Voice of Wits, East Coast Radio, Vuma FM and Metro FM said she survived the ordeal through the support of her friends.
