While many argued that the women were ‘not dressed appropriately’, others defended them adding that the men were the problem.
“There is nothing wrong with the outfits, the problem is the horny men who can’t control their lust. Their behaviour is the very same that would make (them) rape and say “they asked for it”. We can’t be dictated to by men on what to wear,” tweeted @gumbi_mapaseka.
