SBDM Hosts GBV Community Dialogue
On 12 June 2023 the Speaker of SBDM, Cllr Nomhle Gaga, hosted a community dialogue on gender-based violence in Clarkson. The event was held in partnership with Koukamma Municipality and guest speakers from Legal-Aid, Department of Health and Department of Rural Development and Agrarian Reform shared information on services they offer to empower women and victims of abuse.
The scourge of GBV incidents in the district has raised concern among all sectors of government and civil society. The moral regeneration movement which is under the office of the Speaker has been instituted to address issues of moral decay in our communities. If you are a victim of abuse or know someone who is being abused please report it to the SAPS on 10111 or contact the GBV hotline on 0800 428 428, alternately send a ‘please call me’ to *120*7867#.
