'If Ramaphosa takes GBV serious he mustn't do Power FM chairman’s conversation'
There have been calls by some civil organisations for President Cyril Ramaphosa to withdraw from this year’s Chairman’s Conversation hosted by Power FM.
These organisations want Ramaphosa not engage with Given Mkhari who was accused of assault by his wife Ipeleng in 2018.
In July, last year, Mkhari and his wife Ipeleng were both arrested after they individually laid criminal complaints of assault against each other over an alleged fight they had in their home.
Bongani Bingwa chats to Soul City Institute for Social Justice chief executive officer Lebo Ramafoko to weigh in on the matter.
We want Ramaphosa to withdraw from this conversation because he has assured South African women that he takes gender-based violence seriously.Lebo Ramafoko, CEO - Soul City Institute for Social Justice
There are no social consequences for men who are accused or suspected of gender-based violence therefore the violence becomes a social norm, she explains.
If you are a president and you say to South African women that gender-based violence is a shame in society, during 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children you need to practice what you preach.Lebo Ramafoko, CEO - Soul City Institute for Social Justice
