MEC Dube-Ncube Put An End To Illegal Liquor Sale As Part Of Fighting Gender-Based Violence In Inanda

With the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children awareness campaign drawing to a close and concluding on Tuesday, 10 December 2019, KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs, Nomusa Dube-Ncube, is living good on her pledge to remedy the scourge of gender-based crimes in the Inanda area by ridding the so-called “rape capital” of illegal liquor outlets.

 

MEC Dube-Ncube has been in the fore front of the fight against gender-based violence including the abuse of children, genesis of which can be traced to the illicit sale and abuse of alcohol in some areas like Inanda.

 

Following the release of crime statistics which revealed Inanda as having a huge sexual offences area, President Cyril Ramaphosa visited the station in October. The President said the police in the area were faced with a “huge task” of policing the area and reducing the levels of criminality there.
