Police Minister Bheki Cele says it is everybody’s business to wage war on Gender-Based Violence and Femicide.

Cele was speaking during a security cluster dialogue on Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) in Pretoria.

Cele says all GBVF victims should be able to access the criminal justice system.

“They should access a system that is efficient and sensitive to the needs of survivors while being accessible and responsible. In our response to gender-based violence and femicide, the police are making progress in resourcing specialised units that deal with GBVF cases with both funding and human capital.”
