In recent years, this country has seen the scourge of women and children being brutalised and violated, and so for this reason, non-profit organisation Moving Ahead Development Agency, is hosting a Memorial Lecture Against killing of young women. This is also with the aim to commemorate the life of the late Karabo Mokoena and other young women killed in Soweto between April and May 2017.
The lecture is to generate awareness on the killing of young women and the aftermaths in the families and society at large. “We want to invoke active citizenry in curbing the abuse and victimisation of women and children utilising diverse platforms that have high reach and hold social esteem,” the organisations team says.
Moving Ahead Development Agency, whose mandate is to contribute towards the career, skills, enterprise and social development to disadvantaged communities in the country, partnered with Gauteng Social Development and In2it Technologies, among others to host the inaugural memorial lecture.
Susan Shabangu, minister of social development, minister of police Bheki Cele and Gauteng Social Development MEC Nandi Mayathula-Khoza, Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi, Advocate Pumeza Futhane – Jhb Chief Prosecutor and Founder and Executive Chairman Moving Ahead Development Agency Tshepo Mokoena (Uncle of Karabo Mokoena) - will be among those attending and speaking at the lecture. Shabangu will deliver the memorial lecture.
“The memorial lecture against killing of young women and social consciousness initiative aimed at sparking and creating national dialogue on this moral dilemma; we want to invoke active citizenry in curbing the abuse and victimization of women and children utilizing a number of diverse platforms that have high reach and hold social currency,” says Tshepo Mokoena
