Child abuse, sexual and domestic violence are among the most destructive experiences afflicting women and children in South Africa. The prevalence of such violence has taken a toll on the lives of victims as well as the larger society through innumerable consequences.

ACTION

The women fellowship of the JZS Ncevu Memorial Congregation in Queenstown organized a march against the scourge of abuse and killings of women and children. This march took place on the 15th of June. Participants were from many formations of women associations of other churches and community members. They marched to inform the public that the UPCSA branch in Queenstown is not going to be silenced and will not allow this to continue forever.

They submitted a petition to Colonel Tati, who promised to hand it over to his management for action.
