The ANC in Mpumalanga pulled a shocker earlier in the week when they reinstated a member accused of the rape of his two daughters to a top provincial position. They have since reversed the decision – but only due to a public outcry. Now is not the time to start pulling the “innocent until proven guilty” card. The man is facing serious charges. Charges he’s faced before. What a slap in the face as we sit here observing 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, listening to speeches that mean nothing at all when our leaders don’t walk the talk.
