MMC Nkosi Calls for the End of the Gender Based Violence

Mayoral Committee Member for Social Development Cllr Nomadlozi Nkosi visited Thembisa on Saturday to distribute food parcels, face masks and sanitary towels as well as to encourage the community to fight gender-based violence and curb the spread of Covid19.

The visit was also to commemorate International Nelson Mandela Day on Saturday, 18 July.

Cllr Nkosi said gender-based violence and Covid-19 are the main public enemies currently facing the nation.

“Men, specifically, must lead the fight against gender-based violence. Men must know that women are not their enemies. They are the vulnerable members of the community and need to be loved and protected, not to be violated or abused,” she said.

The MMC urged the community to obey the regulations on the Covid-19.

“Let’s keep washing our hands with soap and water, sanitise them and stay at home as far as possible. Let’s walk out only when we have to, otherwise stay at home,” she urged.

Well-known clap and tap group Lejwe La Motheo, made up of youthful members from all over the City were also part of the day’s activities. They have competed in local, provincial and national competitions.
