IT WAS just another Saturday morning at the mall when Boitselo Masina made a grand entrance.

She was dressed in a very short skirt with slits all the way up to her hips and boots with high heels and, according to witnesses, not much else.

But it didn’t take long before she made a grand exit.

Security guards at Menlyn Mall in Pretoria soon escorted the young woman out of the mall.

Boitselo’s outfit brought her a lot of attention, with a video of her going viral. Some people slammed her and others cheered her.

“That’s the way I wear my clothes and I won’t change for anybody,” said Boitselo.

“Fashion is about expressing yourself and that’s what I’m doing. It’s not my problem if people don’t understand me. I wear whatever I want.”

She also quoted 1 Corinthians 12:27 from the Bible, which reads: “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”

Menlyn Mall spokeswoman Inge Brits told Daily Sun that the shopping centre is a public space.

“One can’t just come here wearing anything. There are children and families to consider,” Inge said.

“We are not telling people what to wear, but explicit clothes are forbidden. It’s public indecency.”

Some men commented on the video.

“Only those with ugly bodies will say she has no self-respect,” said a man.

“She has a beautiful body and there’s nothing wrong with showing off what God gave you.”

But many women didn’t like it.

“That woman is trash,” said one of them.
