Western Cape Police say they are prepared to meet with the Right2Know Campaign in an effort to combat gender-based violence. This, after Right2Know staged pickets at a number of police stations on the Cape Flats, to draw attention to the high levels of violence against women and children. Police spokesperson, Colonel Andre Traut, says they have noted the protests which took place at police stations in Khayelitsha, Manenberg, Gugulethu, Hanover Park and Mitchells Plain. He says police remain committed to fighting the scourge of gender based violence. Meanwhile, a female resident in Khayelitsha says the high level of violence against women in her community is very concerning. Vuyokazi Simani says police should be doing more to prevent the rape and murder of women in Khayelitsha. Simani was speaking outside Lingelethu Police station in Khayelitsha, where the Right2Know campaign was protesting against gender based violence: “Woman are being raped every day. They are being killed every day. And nothing is being done about that. I think the police should take initiative and make a stand so that women should be protected also.”
