Taking a stand against rape

Unathi Jongihlathi

SOUTHERN Kings captain Luke Watson was among about 150 Nelson Mandela Bay residents who gathered at the Donkin Reserve yesterday “to stand in solidarity and to stand up in outrage to say enough is enough to rapists”.

The group, members of a voluntary organisation called Just1HR, assembled at the reserve from 1pm to 2pm.

The organisation called on adults and pupils in Nelson Mandela Bay “to give just one hour of their time per month to rebuild the city”. Prayers were said for the family of the six-week-old baby who was raped in Kimberley, allegedly by her uncle, on November 27, and for other victims of rape.

The horrendous crime in Kimberley took place within the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children, which runs from November 25 to December 10.
