The main objective of the event is to commemorate the life of Karabo Mokoena and other young women killed in Soweto between April and May 2017, to create awareness on the killing of young women and the aftermaths in the families and society at large. The dialogue aims to urge society especially men to refrain from such atrocities levelled against women and to show empathy to affected family members.
MEC of community safety for Gauteng says police have done a sterling job thus far with 65 arrests since April last year.
A total of 69 women were killed and police managed to arrest 65 people in connection with these murders.
Minister of Police Minister Cele says police are intensifying awareness campaign to break the silence of domestic violence to prevent such incidents. #ActAgainstAbuse
