Minister in the Presidency for Women, Youth and People with Disabilities, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, has urged men to speak up against Gender Based Violence.

Nkoana Shabane has said this after the body of Tshegofatso Pule, from Gauteng was found hanging from a tree on Monday with multiple stab wounds.

She was eight months pregnant.

Nkoana Shabane says it’s unacceptable that women have to grapple with COVID19 and GBV at the same time.
