The purpose of this petition is to emphasize the plight of women, in South Africa and the SADC region at large, Of late, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of women being brutally murdered by their partners.

Many of the perpetrators are getting away Scott free without any ramifications.

This is a plea to the Minister responsible and her counterparts in the SADC region, Botswana included, to prioritize this issue and to look for a speedy resolution to ensure the safety of women in this region.

Women make up at least half the population and are important contributors to society. Any nation that wants to prosper and progress economically, socially and politically must take care of its women! 

The Minister responsible for Women needs to mobilize stakeholders to address this issue and free on speedy resolution if the matter. A report should be submitted on the issue detailing the extent of the problem and setting out proposed resolutions with responsible departments and people. 

Violence against women is unacceptable and all efforts to curb it must be vigorously implemented!
