Soul cleanse Sundays

Tshepo Jamillah Moyo is a vibrant young woman who gained fame during the ‘I wear what I want’ march – a protest by local ladies about the abuse suffered by a young lady when she was stripped naked at the Gaborone bus rank for putting on a mini-skirt. During the march Moyo had her belly written ‘whore is life’, attracting a backlash from social media followers. To reach out Moyo has launched what she calls ‘Soul Cleanse Sundays’. Moyo said Soul Cleanse Sundays are a safe space for all women where there is no homophobia, transphobia, ableism or sexism. “We are hoping that through these get-togethers we can create a network of women who are taking deliberate care of their mental, physical, emotional, social health, for their own being,” she said. They are hoping to create a place for women to be themselves, to investigate the things and push themselves to grow and eventually give them some coping mechanisms in their lives. Moyo said one of the many goals that she has set for herself in 2018 is to grow and heal deliberately because in September 2017 her entire life felt like one big break where she was fragile and raw. Moyo realised that to be deliberate about her growth she needed to be honest with herself about her weaknesses and strengths and address them. “I have to be intentional about identifying wounds, my broken places, my sicknesses cleaning them up, tending to them and allowing them to heal in healthy ways,” she said. The Soul Cleanse Sundays are for every last Sunday of the month. With Namast’ay Fitness as their partners, Moyo said it costs P150 to register for the sessions.
