S01E04-III | Gay Panic in South Africa (Part III) | The Assault of Sduduzo Buthelezi (feat. Roché Kester - OUT)

In 2017, Sduduzo Buthelezi was killed by Nkosinathi Madlala, a graphic designer he had hired to create car stickers for his business. When the case went to court, the sentence he received sent shockwaves around the country and the world.

In a new segment, Nj speaks to Roché Kester, the Hate Crimes Manager at Out LGBT Well-Being in Pretoria on the prevalence of the Gay Panic Defence in the South African justice system and how concerned the South African queer community should be about the precedent set in the Madlala judgement.
