CAPE TOWN - Rapper AKA has found himself at the centre of a twitterstorm after posting tweets relating to a silent anti-rape protest.

On Saturday, four young women held placards in front of a stage during President Jacob Zuma's address at the Independent Electoral Commission's (IEC) results centre. A woman, known as Khwezi, accused the president of rape in 2005. But a year later, the president was cleared of raping the woman.

The protesters were forcibly removed from the centre by the president's bodyguards last night.
