The phenomenon of women being “sold for sex” at taverns impacts on the government’s success of fighting HIV/Aids‚ President Jacob Zuma says.
Zuma was addressing the youth at an event commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Soweto uprisings in Orlando Stadium on Thursday.
The president was referring to reports that women are taken home by tavern patrons at a price in exchange for sex.
“The long term of impact on our successful fight against HIV/Aids is too ghastly to contemplate.”
Zuma said the government would embark on a campaign to educate women on practices that objectified them.
Men needed to be educated too‚ the president said.
