Today is the start of 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children.
Chief Director for promotion of the rights of vulnerable groups at the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development, Advocate Praise Kambula spoke to 702's John Robbie about what the Domestic Violence Act can do for women and what the department will do about the poor implementation of the Act.
Adv. Kambula also shared her thoughts around the debates to make it an offence to withdraw charges of domestic abuse, as this has been seen as one of the reasons SAPS does not take the Act seriously.
