A rape victim from Khayelitsha was asked to return the next day after she wanted to report a case. This incident comes only one day after President Cyril Ramaphosa promised on Monday that government will do more to empower women by building shelters, employing social workers, and training police and judicial officers.

“We are concerned that government lacks the will to enforce safety and security in South Africa. Citizens are therefore obliged take a stand to change this by joining hands together,” Action Society’s spokesperson, Daleen Gouws says.Earlier this month Action Society launched their “Know your neighbour” campaign: urging President Ramaphosa to publicly release the National Register of Sex Offenders (NRSO).

“If our President is truly concerned about the wellbeing of women and children he will have to make the NRSO available as soon as possible. This will encourage transparency in our communities and help to safeguard children and other vulnerable parties.”

Action Society calls on the public to sign their petition (www.actionsociety.co.za/national-register) addressing this distressing issue. “Effortlessly you can help to change someone’s future,” Gouws says.
