COPE stands firm for women

  • August 11, 2017

The Congress of the People (COPE) in the Moses Kotane Local Municipality, North West Province, will be launching its women abuse awareness campaign tomorrow. The aim is to help curb violence against women. COPE wants men to understand that women are not objects but mothers of our nation.

COPE calls on all men and women across South Africa to support the fight against women abuse.

We pledge to take a firm stand to fight violence against women.

We encourage men, women, children, families, neighbours, colleagues and friends to speak out and raise their voices against women abuse.It is our responsibility as political parties, leaders, business people and members of the SA community to challenge this monster.

We have invited ex-offenders, male speakers from various society groups, female victims of abuse and the COPE National Leadership to deeply convey the strong message to all the men out there. They must stop treating women like pieces of useless papers.

Just a few weeks ago, the community of Manamakgoteng Village outside Rustenburg witnessed gruesome incidents. A 15-year-old school girl was allegedly raped and killed.

A woman from the same area was also brutally murdered and burnt to ashes inside her car. 

These are some of the reasons we decided to take our campaign to the village of Manamakgoteng.


The event is as follows:

VENUE: Manamakgoteng Village soccer field.
