Following the sentencing of Karabo Mokoena's killer Sandile Matsoe, Mbuyiselo Botha from the NGO Sonke Gender Justice says there should be activism against women and child abuse 365 days a year.
Speaking to Ray White on The Midday Report, Botha says resources to address gender-based violence and engage with men must receive funding.
I think it's important that as a country we put resources into it. When you look at the ministry of women and children which needs resources, we can't claim as a country that we are serious about stopping gender-based violence and sexual violence when in fact these institutions always without fail are under-resourced.— Mbuyiselo Botha, Sonke Gender Justice
We must as a country ask ourselves: Do we mean business or just lip service? Are we ticking the box that this is what we are doing?— Mbuyiselo Botha, Sonke Gender Justice
Botha says the entire justice system has effective in dealing with the Sandile Mantsoe murder trial. Mantsoe has been sentenced to 32 years in jail for the murder of the girlfriend Karabo Mokoena.
