In an effort to create and enhance active and meaningful participation of men in the fight against Gender Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) Domestic Violence and Sexual offences, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma Municipality, will on Friday 28 October 2022, hold a first of its kind Imbizo ya Madoda Imbizo for Men.
This unique community engagement is expected to be attended mainly by men who reside in ward 8, and other men around the jurisdiction of the municipality. Community of ward 8 has reported some of the highest GBV cases.
