Hundreds of fathers and sons from the Act Now Movement have marched to the Union Buildings against the scourge of gender-based violence. This comes after the body of yet another woman was found.
A 17-year-old girl has been discovered dead on a street near Philippi in Cape Town. The movement’s interim spokesperson Sello Maake Ka-Ncube says they have handed over a memorandum to the Presidency.
“The memorandum contains a whole lot of legal things and that we want the constitutional reform, we want police to be reformed and we want police visibility and presence.
“We also want the government’s support when we hold dialogues and these dialogues aren’t for numbers because we have had dialogues where someone is on stage and addressing the people but I think it is time for men to have conversations with each other,” he said. The group has called on men across the country to change their behavior.
