Gauteng Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Development MEC Morakane Mosupye says that being a victim of gender based violence (GBV) herself she doesn’t believe the responsibility to curb the scourge shouldn’t solely be on shoulders of one gender, she says it should be a collective effort.

Mosupye made these comments on Tuesday as South Africa was commemorating youth day, June 16 in Soshanguve Block H.

“It is mostly men who are abusing women looking at statistics, but it is a problem that should be solved by men working together with women, but driven by men” she said.

The question was raised having seen the number of GBV cases rising in the country with now the latest gruesome ordeal where a 28 years old Tshegofatso Pule was found hanging on a tree with stab wounds, in what is believed to be GBV in Soweto earlier this month.

She was 8 months pregnant.

At the time Pule was discovered another 25 years old young mother was also beaten to death allegedly by her partner.
