State confirms NSP on GBVF was approved in March 2020

Published on

President Cyril Ramaphosa led the discussions on GBVF during a recent virtual dialogue, at which it was confirmed that the NSP on GBVF was approved in March 2020, despite the slow progress.

The state took to Twitter on Wednesday, 25 November 2020, to detail its dialogue on gender-based violence and femicide (GBVF), which was led by President Cyril Ramaphosa. The dialogue also enlisted the voices of various ministers and prominent South African figures.

One of the matters that was addressed was the National Security Plan on Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (NSP on GNBVF). During the session, it was confirmed that the plan was approved in March 2020. The plan is believed to be a six-pronged one aimed at not only eliminating GBVF, but also empowering women and children who are victims of such offences.

While the discussion worked to unpack the plans stipulated in the NSP on GBVF, the continued delay in its implementation was not touched on. Similarly, neither was the matter of the National Council on GBVF, which was meant to be established by the Department of Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities.
