An ANC Mpumalanga member is charged with rape after being arrested for allegedly raping his twin daughters. This is happening when the ANC reaffirms its support for victims of gender-based violence.
Given as South Africans mark the 16 days of activism, the African National Congress (ANC) has strongly opposed the gender-based catastrophe. However, the party is accused of hypocrisy after the suspension of one of its members of the State Executive Committee (PEC) in Mpumalanga, despite being accused of raping its twin daughters.
Vice President David Mabuza launched the campaign on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, to raise awareness about the abuse of women and children.
The ANC described gender-based violence as a pervasive problem in South Africa, which has a significant impact on an individual level, on victims զոհ emotionally and physically burdened և survivors.
“The African National Congress calls on all sectors of society to play their part in the fight against gender-based violence, violence against the elderly and children, and femicide. We cannot, as a society, afford to turn a blind eye to this scourge,” the ANC said in a statement.
The ruling party further said the scale of the impact of gender-based violence places an unavoidable responsibility on society as a whole.
“We reiterate the call by the President for us to continue in the spirit of mutual respect and partnership, to make this year’s 16 Days of Activism campaign one that is impactful and that makes a difference,” the ANC further said
The politician, whose identity is known but not kept to protect the children involved, ironically recovered the same week as the 16-day campaign. He and his 26-year-old stepson were arrested in September and granted R20,000 bail after several court appeals.
In Mbumalanga, the ANC defended its decision, allowing the accused to return despite the accusations.
“The issue of stepping aside is still something that is being discussed at the national level, so we in the PEC decided that we should allow him to participate in the ANC until the final decision is made on how we will move forward. the organization, ”party spokeswoman Sasekane Manzini told Eyewitness News (EWN).
The eight-year-old girls allegedly told the teacher about the rape, which she later reported to the police. This, however, was not his first run with the law, as he was accused of rape.
The case was postponed to January 2021.
