Johannesburg - Women, Children, and People with Disabilities Minister Lulu Xingwana launched the start of the 16 days of no violence against women and children campaign in Atteridgeville, Pretoria, on Friday.

Xingwane also launched the green door campaign to mark the 12th anniversary of the 16 day campaign.

"This campaign will also focus on other problems facing women and children, including killings related to witchcraft," she said.

In line with the green door campaign, a memorial park would be built on Saturday in honour of 10-year-old Masego Kgomo.

After being raped and killed, some of her body parts were removed for muti.

Xingwane said the department had submitted motivations encouraging the heaviest sentence for Kgomo's killer.

The 16 days campaign ends on December 10.

    It would be useful if she recognised the damaged done to the ex NECSA workers and their families. I am not sure that she has any idea of what she is talking about which saddens me

    Sould launching this campaing not be the prerogative of Bathabile Dlamini the minister of "Women and Children"? Somebody help me out here. Whats Xingwana's portfolio and how is it different from Dlamini's? Does the South African government need either of these two cretins?
