WITH the commencement of 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children approaching, a group of civil servants, community members, government officials, parents and private sector individuals have joined forces to embark on a CBD Awareness Walk.
The walk is intended to create awareness and implement change in terms of domestic violence issues and school bullying which has been prevalent in KwaDukuza in the past few months.
The group has formed a planning committee and is that residents join in the march.

“The number of domestic violence cases are increasing and school bullying is leaving pupils physically and emotional traumatised.
“Parents and community members need to know that there are a few good men and women who want to change the circumstances and it is for this reason a team of private individuals and local government officials have joined to unite against violence in schools, homes and our community,” said Nirvana Naidoo spokesperson of the organising committee.
“We are calling on the community, other government institutions and private sector to march together on Friday, 25 November in solidarity and unite against the social ills destroying women, children and schools.”

The march will commence at the King Shaka Monument at 8.30am and conclude at the KwaDukuza Magistrate’s Court with the handing over of a memorandum.
