IFP TO LAUNCH NATIONAL 16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM CAMPAIGN

MEDIA ADVISORY

On Monday 25 November 2019, IFP President Emeritus Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi MP and IFP President the Hon. Velenkosini Hlabisa MPL, together with the IFP’s Women’s Brigade, the National Executive Committee and all Party structures, will launch our National 16 Days of Activism Campaign to Stop Violence Against Women and Children.

The IFP’s leadership – including MPs, MPLs, Mayors, Deputy Mayors, Speakers, Councillors and senior officials – will sign a Pledge of Commitment in support of ending gender-based violence. We are uniting all Party structures to champion the fight against GBV, by taking action today to secure a safer, violence-free and more just tomorrow.

The IFP is walking the talk and delivering on our promise to all South Africans during the 2019 National and Provincial Elections, as captured in our Manifesto. We are fully committed to champion, defend and protect the rights of women and children.

Tragically, South Africa remains a country of vast inequality. Despite our Constitution and legislation, South Africa’s women face not only discrimination, but abuse, violence and victimisation. This must change. Our first priority is to stop the brutal abuse and murder of women and children.

Details of the campaign launch are as follows –

Date: Monday, 25 November 2019
Time: 10h00
Venue: The Cathedral of the Holy Nativity, Anglican Church, 169 Langalibalele Street, Pietermaritzburg
