Playing soccer in honour of women

2015-08-13 06:00

MARKING Women’s Month, Umgungundlovu 107.6 FM will play football against the Premier’s office at the YMCA sports ground on Saturday.

The game, starting at 10am, is aimed at celebrating women.

Event organiser Mdu “DJ Nice” Ntshangase said: “With August being Women’s Month, we want to celebrate women and their contribution in society.

“We also want to preach about anti-women abuse because based on statistics, it seems that more women are being abused every day. We say ‘enough is enough’. No woman deserves to be abused, physically, emotionally and financially.

“As men we owe it to ourselves to love and protect women because they are nurturers.”

Co-organiser Zazi Nxele said another aim of the game is to engage in constructive conversation with men and talk about issues affecting women.

“It will also be a matter of exchanging ideas about how we can support women, and help them champion developmental projects. We are all affected by women abuse, hence we call women to come in their numbers as the game is about them.

“We are paying tribute to our heroines and at the same time want to encourage them to strive for better.”

Artists who want to perform at the event, must contact DJ Nice on 060 414 1383
