Johannesburg - Actress Thembisa Mdoda recently made some strong comments about abuse on Instagram.
Thembisa took to the social media platform to wish her friend, and actress Rosie Motene a very happy birthday.
And, during her heartfelt message, Thembisa thanked Rosie for being a pillar of strength to her.
"Broken. Bruised. Battered. Swollen and Blue. I reached out to Rosie one night and I haven't looked back since. She gave me the strength to fight for me and my children. Opened my eyes to options outside of it all. As much as you think you're learnered, open minded and strong. Abuse can change you. She saved my life. And for that I will always be grateful. For Vagina Monologues, I will always be grateful. For presence in my life, I am truly blessed. Happy Birthday Rosie Motene. You are loved!!!," Thembisa wrote.
Numerous attempts to get in touch with Thembisa about the comments have been unsuccessful.
Thembisa recently split from actor Atandwa Kani, who she has twin sons with.
