The ANC Women’s League in Gauteng, in conjunction with the national office of the Women’s League, will on Monday be marching to the British embassy in Pretoria. The Women’s League will demand Shrien Dewani be extradited back to South African and stand trial for the crimes he is accused of. It must be made clear to the international community that South Africa is not a slaughter house and justice must be allowed to take its course. We will be handing over a letter to the ambassador in which we will be raising our concerns as South African women and we hope this plea will reach the courts in England when Dewani’s extradition hearing begins again in July.
The ANC Women’s League is committed to fighting patriarchy and bringing an end to all forms of gender based violence.
All women are encouraged to join the march to the British Embassy in Pretoria and make our voices heard. We say NO to violence against women in South Africa.
DATE: 10th December 2012. (Monday)
Other details such as time and starting venue will be communicated at a later stage.
