Sixteen days of activism for no violence against women and children is not enough. South Africa has the highest rape statistics in the world and ordinary citizens cannot stand by and accept that, said Peter Watt, pastor at the Westville Christian Fellowship and organiser of a 12-hour vigil at the intersection in front of the Pavilion Mall today. The vigil, named the STOP Rape Campaign, which will take place at the intersection of Booth, Mahlati and Spine roads, will begin at 6 am and end at 6 pm. A core of people from Westville and Chesterville will remain on the kerbside for the entire 12 hours while other groups will come for two-hour shifts throughout the day. They will wear black T-shirts with “STOP Rape” on the front. Pavilion general manager Preston Gaddy has given permission for the T-shirts to be sold inside the mall.
