In the 2019 Multi-Party Women’s Parliament Caucu, which was devoted in large part to discuss and implement protection for women in South Africa from a scourge of gender based violence, Makoti Sibongile Khawula’s statement is equally chilling, disgusting and disregarding of women’s rights. It also shows a lack of understanding and knowledge of the reality of the situation that she is supposedly a part of resolving.

In the notes of the meeting, which can be found via this link:

Makoti Sibongile Khawula is quoted :

“The Honorable Member said there is nothing wrong with the men in this country, even the ones who rape. She insisted that the problem is with the women because they are the ones who give birth to these rapists and marry the abusers and let them get away with whatever they do.”

For a woman to blame to blame women for their rape and abuse and - in the very same sentence - to exonerate the perpetrators, is indefensible.

This person clearly does not grasp the very basics of the causes, perpetuation and solutions required to end the rape, harassment, assault and abuse of women.


She is not qualified to be a part of this committee.

The women of South Africa cannot be adequately and responsibly represented by a person holding this view.


The government of South Africa is failing it’s women if it allows this person to continue to be active on this committee.

This person must be removed from this committee with immediate effect.
