Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) rebuked the circulation of the video showing the Hluhluwe man being raped by the three women saying it’s against the law to distribute pornographic content through social media or any other form without following legal prescripts.
The Commission said it is outraged about the case. Speaking for the CGE, Its Chairperson, Mfanozelwe Shozi said:
“I am very sad that we experience yet another rape…This case and many other similar GBV cases should compel stakeholders with specific interest in this matter to work together in order to root out the scourge of gender-based violence in our society. As a society, we should have zero tolerance for such acts regardless of who the victim is.”
CGE encouraged men who have been raped to report it so that the society will be informed that boys and men are also sexually violated.
Nonetheless, the Commission stressed that rape is rape regardless of who the perpetrator of such crime is.
“… CGE will closely monitor the case as part of its internal court monitoring process to ensure justice is done and seen to be done,” the Commission vowed.
