WATCH: Proposal for sex work to be decriminalised

05 July, 02:01 PM

Gauteng Province raised the 'contentious issue' of sex workers and the decriminalisation of their work in plenary. 

Chairperson of the ANC NEC Subcommittee on Social Transformation, Lindiwe Sisulu, briefed the media on the outcomes of the policy conference on Wednesday.

"Gauteng feels that we are unduly harsh on people who are trying to make a living and that it is the men that must be criminalised."

The motion was tabled but, as it has not gone through the necessary process of consultation, it would have to be considered at the party's December conference.
