#16Days: Residents of Gugulethu demand safety in our community

On Tuesday 28 November 2017, Sonke and other civil society parters marched to Nyanga Police station to draw attention to the high rates of gender-based violence in the Gugulethu community and to reiterate our urgent demand for government to implement a National Strategic Plan on gender-based violence. We are calling on our government to improve the safety of its citizens, particularly in informal settlements. We need better street lighting, better police response and resources, safer sanitation and more.

Then handing over of a memorandum to Mr Dan Plato, MEC of Community Safety will be followed up with a meeting with the Department of Community Safety, Western Cape on 26 January 2018 in order to track progress of the community asks.
