'Ramaphosa must give a view on GBV at Power FM chairman’s conversation'
Civil organisations are calling for President Cyril Ramaphosa to withdraw from this year’s Chairman’s Conversation hosted by Power FM.
These organisations want Ramaphosa to not engage with Given Mkhari, who was accused of assault by his wife Ipeleng in 2018.
Eusebius McKaiser had the following to say about the matter.
I can't see how the president can go a whole day without offering a view on the whole matter. Even if he continues with the scheduled interview, he has to offer a view on this matter.Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
The president needs to consider what Lebo [Ramafoko of Soul City] says and offer a view and take us into his confidence on how he views this matter.Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
McKaiser questions whether the law is the only standard for knowing that someone is abusive?
Is the only standard for deciding whether to ostracise someone the legal standard?Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
The law is not the beginning and the end of talking about gender-based violence in the country.Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
He adds that Ramafoko had a point on the Given Mkhari case.
Here charges were withdrawn so we had a glimpse of a claim of his behaviour.Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
