Johannesburg - One of the witnesses in controversial Pastor Timothy Omotoso's rape trial, Cheryl Zondi on Tuesday announced she has launched her own foundation.
Zondi made the announcement at a media briefing at the offices of the CRL Rights Commission in Braamfontein.
Addressing reporters, the 22-year-old UJ student announced that the non-profit organisation would be named after herself.
"Just to give a bit of background on the foundation. First of all the decision to name it after myself never crossed my mind at first, but when I thought about it, it made sense because unawares, not expecting the kind of turnout, not anticipating the level of support that I received just by saying something that happened to me, I attached my name and my face to this cause that is so close to my heart and that I now consider my calling. It's the reason why I'm here.
"Through this foundation, I want to assist women and young people who have gone through the same experiences I have in sacred spaces," she said.
