Men from various law enforcement agencies in Rustenburg marched through the town’s streets today to raise awareness abut the abuse of women and children.

Chairperson of the Men’s Forum at the Rustenburg Correctional Services Centre, Maleho Gaonakala, said the march was about raising awareness about the social ills in the town.

“We are saying responsible men cannot abuse children, cannot abuse their own women, and we want to start with men in law enforcement,” he said.
