ON Monday men from Ixopo and surrounding areas spoke with one voice at a march organised by the Ubuhlebezwe Municipality Men’s Forum to protest against women and child abuse.

The march was also supported by Ubuhlebezwe mayor Zamo Nxumalo, Cllr Thulani Dlamini, Speaker Zwakele Mngonyama, community leaders.
Addressing marchers, Dlamini told young men to protect the women in the community.

The forum was revived last year by men from Harry Gwala, Ubuhlebezwe, Greater Kokstad, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and Umzimkhulu municipalities.
The forum deputy chairperson, Khulekani Mkhize encouraged men to join the forum to fight women and children abuse.

He said their objective is to ensure that women are safe and free to walk anywhere without being attacked and told women not to withdraw cases against abusers.

“We are going to assist police to trace criminals that continue abusing women,” said Mkhize.

Last Friday, forum members also held an anti-abuse march in Kokstad attended by Harry Gwala Municipal deputy mayor, Ntuseng Duma.
