Sonke Gender Justice says more effort needed to deal with GBV in Higher Education

# Sonke Gender Justice says it is evident that more efforts are required from the Higher Education sector to establish mechanisms to deal effectively with gender-based violence and femicide. This comes after a Cape Peninsula University of Technology student was stabbed by her partner at a private student residence in Belhar. The organisation’s Bafana Khumalo says they are calling for more targeted action in setting up appropriate systems that must ensure that all students are safe in campuses and in residences attached to these institutions.
