Sub-council 18 took a stand against gender-based violence last week with a silent protest. Councillors and other staff from the sub-council stood along 5th Avenue in Lotus River on Thursday September 19. Sub-council chairperson Shanen Rossouw said the protest was held to raise awareness about the increased killings and rapes that have plagued the city. “I stand firmly behind the ‘enough is enough’ movement and the fight against abuse and gender-based violence and violence against children,” she said. The group stood with their placards after the sub-council meeting.
