President Cyril Ramaphosa has begin again to condemn gender-based violence.

In his weekly letter, he said he has introduced the three key bills in reference to gender-based violence into the Parliament.

The Criminal Law Act will cover the following:

  • the offence of sexual intimidation,
  • broadened offence of incest, and
  • reports from people who suspect a sexual offence has been committed against a child.

The scope tied around the National Register for Sex Offenders has been broadened and will now include details of all sex offenders.

The public will also be made aware of the new development.

The Criminal and Related Matters Amendment Bill will also create an atmosphere that will make it harder for perpetrators of gender-based violence and femicide to be granted bail.

Ramaphosa is beckoning on the public to join hands and fight against any form of gender-based violence.
