ANC Women’s Caucus dismayed at gruesome rape of 13 year old boy
We are disgusted at this abhorrent physical and sexual abuse of a vulnerable person in society.
We welcome the swift action taken by the mother in making sure that the matter is reported. We request parents to continuously obverse their children. Rape is a heinous crime that has no place in our society.
We commend the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) for speedily suspending the suspect to prevent further harm.
We call upon the community to rally behind survivors of gender-based violence. We must isolate those who continue to abuse women and children and other vulnerable members of the society.
We must ensure that comprehensive government service to all victims are availed immediately.
Abuse and violence has no place in our society.
