Following a gender-based violence awareness campaign, some male taxi drivers decided to join in earnest. The brave men dressed in female attire and wig walked round the streets of South Africa.
Their action triggered responses from hundreds of South Africans who in return hailed these drivers.
According to a group of taxi drivers, they stood together in support of a noble cause.
Mosala Mabeleng, who participated in the protest, shared how he and some other drivers walked the streets in female dresses and high heels.
Their inspiration originated from recent campaigns against gender-based violence.
Mabeleng shared details and images on Facebook and thenation.co.za followed the trend.
