Zulu monarch King Goodwill Zwelithini has urged amakhosi to play a bigger role and lead campaigns to stop the violence and abuse of women.

Zwelithini said it was a disgrace to the nation to see a man hit or abuse a woman.

"Women need to be given more respect. It's not our culture to abuse and rape a woman. Real men cannot do such evil," the king said.

Speaking at Sandanezwe in Donnybrook in southern KwaZulu-Natal, the king said it was saddening to see a man wrong a woman.

"During the time of wars women used to enter in between the warriors. And no warrior would lay a hand on a woman.

"Amakhosi should lead all campaigns to stop abuse against women.

"It's not in our culture to abuse women and people should stop linking their bad habits to culture," he said.

Relating to the matter of T-section in Umlazi 17 Men's Hostel where a woman was stripped and forced to parade naked in public because she wore pants, King Zwelithini said: "There is not even a single person who has the right to abuse a woman."

He urged the youth not to become slaves to sex.

"My people are dying of HIV and Aids. Some think they can put their trust in ARVs. But the ARVs are meant for those infected and people should be wary of putting their lives at risk," he warned.
