“All male councillors in all Nkangala region municipalities are invited to the male march against gender-based violence,” she writes in the letter dated 7 July 2020.

Last month, President Cyril Ramaphosa said the country was faced with two pandemics – one being the SARS-COV-2 disease and the other being the “war on women”.

“These women are not just statistics. They have names, and they have families,” said the President. “Their killers thought they could silence them. But we will not forget them, and we will speak for them where they cannot.”
