Social Development MEC in the province, Nonhlanhla Khoza, says anyone who turns a blind eye to gender based violence is as guilty as the perpetrator.

Khoza has been addressing community members at Umthwalume’s Umzumbe Taxi Rank on the provinces south coast.

This follows the discovery of decaying woman’s bodies in sugar cane fields and in a nearby forrest.

The MEC says even though most violence happens behind closed doors, it’s still important for close friends, neighbors as well as relatives to act if they suspect any behavioral change in their loved ones.

Khoza also has urged men to play a bigger role in raising their children, especially those who are no longer in a relationship with the child’s mother.

Khoza says most men only pay monthly installments for their children and nothing more.

She says all children need to experience love from both parents so they can grow up understanding what it is to give and receive love, adding that this will make better men and women.
