"We have a storyline where a boyfriend abuses his girlfriend. Gender based violence is a huge issue in Mzansi and we had to do something about it, as the show", Spokeswoman of Uzalo, Nomfundo Zondi said.
"He will talk to the men of Kwa Mashu and plead with them to protect women. We hope that with this storyline, there will be a decrease in the numbers of gender based violence incidents", Zondi added.

He has previously done well in educating viewers through different storylines and characters, he will definitely not fail in making sure that not only men in Kwa Mashu speak out but also viewers do so about gender based violence that continues to be a problem in Mzansi. Uzalo on the otherhand deserves to be applauded for bringing in the GBV storyline, for as long as it remains to be a problem it should continuously be showed on television screens to educate more and more people.
