Rietgat police led the fight against women and children abuse recently.
The men and women in blue showed leadership during an awareness campaign at Soshanguve plaza where World Aids Day was also commemorated.
“Today, marking the 19th year since South Africa adopted the 16 days of activism for no violence against women and children, the Rietgat SAPS in conjunction with Ga-Rankuwa SAPS, departments of health, correctional services, Gauteng community safety, CPF, faith-based organisations, youth desk, patrollers and Youth for Survival displayed non-tolerance against women and children abusers.
“We are saying enough is enough,” said police spokesperson Captain Stephen Maluleka.
“Voluntary counselling and testing were conducted and condoms and femidoms were also on display for the taking as well as other information brochures and pamphlets.”
Public servants and NGOs unanimously agreed that such campaigns and partnerships could help change perceptions in the fight against social ills.
The campaign reached more than 600 community members.
