CGE investigates sexist and patriarchal allegations against Reverend Dr. Vukile Mehana

The Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) has noted with concern social media recording and reports alleging sexist and patriarchal remarks attributed to the Methodist Church of South Africa and African National Congress (ANC) Chaplain – General Reverend Dr. Vukile Mehana. The alleged utterances were made in a recorded conversation with another Methodist Church member Mr. Raymond Sibanga.

As empowered by Section 187 Constitution of the Republic of South Africa and the CGE Act 39 0f 1996, as amended, Section 11 (1) (e) the Commission shall investigate any gender -related issues of its own accord or receipt of a complaint, and shall endeavour to resolve any dispute or rectify any act or omission by mediation, conciliation or negotiation.

It is against this backdrop that the Commission will investigate the matter, as alleged. The CGE commends the media for its continuous coverage of women and gender rights violation issues.
