In the columns of your newspaper, I bring to your notice that gender-based violence is not taken as seriously as it should be.

The violence against men and children in SA was mentioned as the second pandemic, and with the concerns surrounding the issue, women and children are being abused or killed daily.

As the nation, we need to come together with legal resources and find ways to deal with this issue. It is really shameful because we have to wait for social media to make trends before they can look into it.

There should be campaigns created every month that will help everyone take part and get more informed about the issue.
