South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, while marking Women’s Day yesterday, said that the high level of gender-based violence was a stain on the celebrations, pointing out that “hardly a day goes by … without a report of women being attacked, being violated, and being killed by men,” and that “this cannot continue”. News24 reports that Ramaphosa said the scourge shouldn’t be seen as a women’s problem, but a men’s one, adding that sexual assaults and other violent crimes were often connected to alcohol abuse.
