Gender based violence has been at the centre stage in South Africa.
At least five women have been killed by their partners in separate incidents across the Limpopo Province (South Africa) since the start of the national Lockdown in March.
Glen Mabunda (26) from Lulekani lauched the Black Girl Magic Campaign on Saturday, August 29 at Lulekani AFM church. Mabunda who is the founder and director of the Campaign, explained that the Gender Based Violence campaign that is aimed at raising awareness of the violence and abuse women go through in society.
“I believe it is time for men to take a stand against the oppression that has been imposed on women for centuries because of patriachy being the most propelling element,” said Mabunda.
He partnered with Lulekani South African Police Service, Provincial Correctional Services, Lulekani Social development and Lulekani Victim Empowerment office. Mabunda extended his gratitude to the pastor of Lulekani AFM church, Bishop Lazaurus Chauke and the entire church for their support.
“We hope to have this event annually to raise awareness and support in society,” Mabunda concluded.
