A video of a woman being beaten by her boyfriend recently made some rounds across social media platforms and caused outrage among South Africans.
This video prompted South Africans to seek justice on behalf of the lady who appeared in the video against her boyfriend who has only been identified as Themba through calling his name in the video.

The viral video starts off with the woman telling someone to stop sending her messages on her personal WhatsApp number and rather use the group chat to send the messages but before she completed her statement, a man started beating her up in the video as she screamed his name.
However, with all that said, another video has surfaced with the woman now at a police station but not for Themba. The woman has laid charges against the person who initially shared the video for defamation of character.

South Africans believe the woman is being manipulated by her abusive partner which has led her to lay charges against a person who was trying to help her instead of,”Themba”
Themba is going to kill this woman if she doesn't leave. pic.twitter.com/3imif0VzBO
