'NotInMyName' March Takes Place in Soweto. 26/5/2017

Published by SABCNEWS

A march against gender-based violence will be held in Soweto Friday morning, as part of the #NotInMyName campaign.

Organisations like the Open Disclosure Foundation, Sonke Gender Justice and the Buhle Bolwazi Foundation will lead the march.

It starts at the University of Johannesburg's Soweto Campus at 10 o'Clock, ending at Regina Mundi Church.

Sonke Gender Justice’s  Nonhlanhla Skosana says, “Apart from the march, we will be hearing a lot of stories and conversations that focus on men's involvement on gender based violence prevention. But also we are calling on government to say we need a national strategic plan on prevention of gender based violence, for us to be able to deal with gender based violence in the country, which is costing this country more than 24 to R42-billion per  year.”
