Mkhambathini residents in KwaZulu-Natal march against women and children abuse

Mkhambathini residents in KwaZulu-Natal

Mkhambathini residents near Pietermaritzburg in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands have marched against the abuse of women and children allegedly by some religious leaders in the area.

The country today started the 16 Days of Activism for no violence against women and children. Lifeline says they have been counselling people who claim some religious leaders in the community use their power to lure vulnerable women under the pretence of healing them but rape them instead.

Lifeline Director Sinikiwe Biyela joined the community members who were all dressed in black and carrying placards with messages such as “End rape culture.”

“There are a lot of cases where girls and teenagers have been raped by religious leaders, which are the pastors, the priests or sometimes they call themselves prophets. They call them and say that they have a vision and say there’s something wrong with the young girls or there’s something wrong with the woman and they need prayer. So, when the woman comes for the prayer that’s when they get raped by the pastors,” says Bivela.
