The police will do all in its power to continue to protect women and children and to empower them to stand up against those who victimise and abuse their fundamental rights to safety and security, that was the message expressed during Ezinqoleni Saps’ march in aid of 16 Days of Activism.

It was echoed by various other speakers who reminded the community of the need to protect its women and children and for men to ‘stand up and be accountable as real men’.
