Premier Mathabatha calls youth to action against Gender-Based Violence

LIMPOPO – Limpopo Premier Chupu Mathabatha has sent out an invitation to all young people in the province to become advocates for action against Gender-Based Violence.

Premier Mathabatha said the killing of women by men of our country had reached monumental proportions.

This, during his virtual address on the occasion of the National Youth Day commemoration on Tuesday, 16 June 2020, when the country observed its 44th anniversary of the day.

“Generations of youth before you, fought and won against a vicious system of apartheid. You are called upon to wage a war against a vicious cycle of Gender-Based Violence. We want to hear your voice as young people saying that ‘women have a right to freedom of choice, they have a right to freedom of movement, and women have a right to bodily integrity, and above all, women have a right to life’,” said Mathabatha.

Premier Mathabatha also encouraged the youth to seize the opportunities that came with freedom and democracy to equip themselves with skills that they would use to advance the development of the country.

“Your simple task in this regard is to make education fashionable,” advised Mathabatha. He said it was out of the young people’s personal development that they would be empowered to make their own contribution towards the development of the province and the country.

“As we commemorate the heroic struggles of the 1976 generation, you are also challenged to seize the opportunities that are born out of their sacrifices. The least you can do in honour of that brave generation of youth martyrs is to make something of your own lives as young people,” said Mathabatha.
