“At the moment we have only four schools in our ward and the new schools will add the schools to seven. We don’t want to see our children traveling a long distance to get a better education. We have built more than 4 000 RDP houses in the ward and we are still building more than 170 houses in Extension 6 because we fulfill our promises to the people,” said Chiloane.

 

Chiloane condemned those who are delaying development by stopping the projects in the community.

“There are those who are going around stopping projects, inform us about such people because Minister Cele will deploy police to deal with them. Inform us about people who are stopping projects and we will inform the police because we want services in our areas. n the 8 May go and vote ANC,” added Chiloane.

Call for boycott and arrest of Mampitsha

By AFRICA KA MAHAMBA

THE  ANCWL YWD has called for boycotting and arrest of controversial Durban artists known as Mampitsha. This came after a video showing the artist assaulting Babes Wodumo.

Precious Banda the National Convenor of the  ANCWL YWD said they note with disgust the circulating video of music artist Mampintsha physically assaulting his girlfriend and a renowned artist in the music industry, Babes Wodumo.

“The position of the ANCWL YWD on rape and Gender-Based Violence remains consistent, we detest abusers, and we affirm that there is no space in our democratic country for abuse and rape. We also stand and believe the women who continue to be violated and dehumanized in the hands of men. The ANCWL YWD further contends that our communities should at all times stand with the victim.

“We call on the sexual offenses unit under SAPS to take up the matter because the video is available on public platforms. It is in the interest of the people in general and women in particular that they pursue this matter and every other matter that reaches public attention. The SAPS and the entire criminal justice system has an obligation to defend the violation of any law of our country, in this case, the clear violation of the Domestic Violence Act, Sexual Offenses Act and the rights of women,” said Banda.

Banda further calls on all South African’s and radio stations to boycott and mute Mampintsha immediately and the music industry in its entirety should not support an artist that is an unrepentant abuser.

She said whereas in South Africa the law states one is innocent until proven guilty, they hold the principle that in a deeply patriarchal society like ours, they have a responsibility to side with and protect the victim.

“ A continued support for the monster Mampintsha is an affirmation and perpetuation of the abuse of women, people that support abusers are the reason women and children continue to get killed on a daily basis. We call on all of us to stand in solidarity with women that gain the courage to speak out and also with those that continue to suffer in silence.

“We also call for drastic changes and deliberate policies in the entertainment industry because women continue to suffer in silence as their music and talent are “owned” by record labels that are managed and owned by abusive men who threaten to destroy them whenever they stand up for themselves,” added Banda.

She stressed that because of social and economic implications, it is difficult for women in the entertainment industry to break the silence and stand against these abusive men.

“We call on the Minister of arts and culture to establish a special programme that empowers women record labels and that a fund is established to assist women that want to walk out of abusive stables in the industry. The time for men threatening to own women in this industry is over,” she concluded. africa@citypost.co.za
