WARD 27 residents, led by Councillor Manqoba Ngubo, held a peaceful walk against women and children abuse on Saturday.

The walk, also supported by men, started in Victoria Road and finished at the Old Prison.

Ngubo said they began the campaign because they read about women and children abuse in the media almost every day and will keep the “movement” going.

“I don’t remember this ward having a programme like this, which is why we started it. From now on it is will be an annual event held every August because August is Women’s Month.

“We want to raise awareness about the terrible things that happen in our communities. We want people to realise that as the community of Ward 27 we are against this abuse.”

Ngubo said women and children are very important and that a person who abuses a woman or a child abuses the country.

“ The future of this country lies with these children. If you abuse them it means you are fighting with the future of this country. Women are the backbone of our country, in communities and at home - they are the backbone of our families.”

Ngubo said if people unite and fight women and children abuse their action will take the country far.
