#NotInMyName raises concerns over gender-based violence crisis

# # Hashtag NotInMyName has expressed concern over South Africa’s ongoing struggle against gender-based violence and femicide, despite government efforts. This follows reports of a police member allegedly stabbing his colleague and girlfriend, capturing her dying moments on video. The movement says Police minister Bheki Cele’s quarterly crime statistics which revealed alarming figures, should prompt for more action to combat gender-based violence and femicide. The movement also demands transparency in fund usage and urges collective action to ensure safety for women and children.
