Ramaphosa calls on traditional leaders to lead fight women abuse

Deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa has urged traditional leaders to advance and improve the lives of the people-as the country faces challenging economic times.

Ramaphosa delivered a closing address at the Inaugural Indigenous and Traditional Leaders Indaba in Boksburg on Friday.

The Indaba discussed issues affecting the important institution of traditional leaders and their communities as well as their role in radical economic development and land matters.

Clement Manyathela was there.

He focused on the role traditional leaders have to play in societies, that they have to lead the fight against HIV and Aids, against the abuse of women.

He also spoke a bit about land reform. In one of the declarations from this traditional indaba, the traditional leaders want 13% of land to be transferred by government to traditional authorities.

Ramaphosa said that government supports this but it must be done in a way that will be of advantage to a large proportion of South Africans.
