JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Safety MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane on Tuesday urged women in the entertainment industry to report any abuse they may have suffered at the hands of their bosses.
"We have seen the careers of the entertainment personnel deteriorating as a result of exploitation, so the time has come for us as society to deal with gender-based violence within the entertainment ranks," said Nkosi-Malobane.
Nkosi-Malobane said they cannot decide for the artists but they were willing to work with them to deal with this "monstrous behaviour".
"As a country we have to start openly speaking about the industry abuse," said Nkosi-Malobane.
She urged the bosses to stop taking advantage of their employees.
