Popular comedian Samantha Kureya aka Gonyeti has just won a top award in South Africa.
BUSTOP TV made an announcement on social media
“In recognition of her sterling contribution to the cause of Human Rights at great personal risk, The Southern Africa Human Rights Network has awarded Gonyeti the grand honor of Human Rights Defender of the year.”
Gonyeti made headlines last August after she was allegedly taken from her home, beaten and forced to drink sewage before being dumped, her colleagues narrated at the time.
Her colleague Lucky Aaron told the BBC, at the time, that she was dumped in “the bush” in the suburbs of Harare.
He said he picked her up and took her to the hospital for scans which confirmed no bones had been broken.
But he was still concerned for her health because she was forced to drink sewage, he added. We could not establish a police report at the time of writing.
