EFF implicates SAPS in acts of GBVF

Published on

The EFF’s Omphile Maotwe expressed the party’s stance on GBVF during a parliamentary session, in which she claimed that some members of the SAPS are part of the problem.

The Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) Omphile Maotwe, on Tuesday, 24 November 2020, expressed the EFF’s stance in Parliament on the matter of gender-based violence and femicide (GBVF). The parliamentary discussion was held ahead of the commencement of the 16 Days of Activism against GBVF in the country.

Maotwe, during the address, highlighted two factors that the party believes hinders progress as it relates to the issue. The first was that men should play an active role in fighting for the protection of women and children. Moreover, men should be able to call out those close to them who are believed to be perpetrators.

The second factor Maotwe touched on was the alleged police brutality against women. Moatwe referenced the latest strike action between EFF members and the community of Brackenfell. The South African Police Service (SAPS) allegedly responded with violence against EFF protesters, some of which were reportedly women. Her call was for men to take an active role in attempting to fight GBVF and for the SAPS to be more cognizant when enforcing the law.
