Maimane calls for action from the state to combat GBVF

Published on

Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter to call for practical solutions from the ruling party in addressing GBVF, suggesting that currently, the ANC is all talk and no action.

The Chief Activist of One South Africa Movement (OSA), Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter on Wednesday, 25 November 2020, to circulate his statement on what he believes is the lack of implementation of plans set out by the ruling party. Maimane addressed the matter in reference to the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism.

On the first day, the ruling party hosted various events and had ministers and the president delivering speeches to mark the period. Moreover, the state announced Five Days of Remembrance for the lives lost to COVID-19 and victims of gender-based violence and femicide (GBVF). The ruling party also reiterated its plans to implement the National Strategic Plan on Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (NSP on GBVF), which, despite being approved in March, has still not been executed as planned.

According to Maimane, “It is now time to up the ante on the name and shaming of sexual offenders and those that abuse the women of South Africa. OSA is committed to championing interventions that ensure women in South Africa feel safe [and] are safe.”
