Tsekiso Machike: There’ll be workshops against women abuse

He said young men will be targeted in the series of discussions against the violence meted against women in our society.

Nkangala ANCYL deputy chairman Tsekiso Machike said in no time the region will conduct workshops, preaching and educating young men against women abuse.

Machike said this programme is meant to raise awareness and the level of consciousness in the war to end the discrimination, rape and killing of South African women.

This follows a march on Friday (2 Jun) submitting a memorandum to Mpumalanga safety and security MEC Pat Ngomane to do something about the gender-based scourge.

The word ‘trash’, used to describe abusive men, went viral on social networks following the gruesome killing of Karabo Mokoena in Johannesburg.

Her death caused national outrage after her 27-year-old boyfriend, Sandile Mantsoe, was arrested and charged with her murder and defeating the ends of justice after it emerged he allegedly killed and transported her lifeless body to a ditch in Bramley where he dumped her, doused her in acid and petrol and set her alight, burning her beyond recognition.

“We have noted with abhorrence the recent acts of ambush and tragic killings of women by men who are perceived to be their loved ones and escalating perpetual child abuse, as the ANC Youth League, we condemn and admonish these acts of barbarism and strongly highlight that they don’t have space in our society,” Machike said.

“And anybody found to be a perpetrator of such ought to be dealt with harshly by the law enforcement agencies,” he said.
