CGE’s response to the rape of Hluhluwe Man by three Women
The Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) is outraged about a case involving the rape of a Hluhluwe man by three women. Through its mandate, the CGE is obliged to monitor cases of this kind in a bid to ensure that adequate interventions are made by the CGE and other institutions, where possible.
The Chairperson of the Commission for Gender Equality, Mr. Mfanozelwe Shozi had this to say about the rape of the Hluhluwe man:
“I am very sad that we experience yet another rape (regardless of who is involved). It should be noted that this happens at the time when the CGE, the State and NGO’s have taken measures to ensure that there is public awareness through Public Education and Outreach programmes that are geared towards raising awareness on matters of gender based violence in our society. This case and many other similar GBV cases should compel stakeholders with specific interest in this matter to work together in order to root out the scourge of gender-based violence in our society. As a society, we should have zero tolerance for such acts regardless of who the victim is”.
According to Sexual Offences Act and Related Matters Amendment Act 32 of 2007, any person who unlawfully and intentionally commits an act of sexual penetration with a complainant without the consent is guilty of offence of rape. Rape is rape regardless of who is the perpetrator of such a heinous crime. The Commission for Gender Equality is encouraging men who are raped to report such acts and speak out against them and society should also be alert to the fact that boys and men do also get sexually violated.
The CGE wants to dissuade the circulation of the video that shows the Hluhluwe man being raped by these three women. It is against the law to distribute pornographic content through social media or any other form without following legal prescripts. Such act is punishable by law.
The CGE has also learnt that this rape case well be heard at the Hluhluwe Magistrate Court on 25 October 2016. The CGE will closely monitor the case as part of its internal court monitoring process to ensure justice is done and seen to be done. Halloween costumes for all ages and sizes.
