Minister of Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities Maite Nkoana-Mashabane

This department is failing dismally because women are continuously subjected to gruesome killings and horrendous gender-based violence (GBV), perpetrators often walk away unpunished, and youths and people with disabilities are largely not catered for in the job market.

Failures: In several of her speeches, the minister alluded to an increase in GBV during the Covid-19 pandemic, and said her department was working strategically to end it. But there should have been a viable preventative plan in place as soon as the pandemic surfaced (and long before then). The reactionary stance reveals the glaring lack of proactivity in this department.
