CIVIL SOCIETY SUBMISSION RELATING TO COMBATING GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE
2019 Budget not serious about addressing Gender Based Violence
- This submission focuses on analysing the budget in relation to combating Genderbased Violence (GBV) and femicide.
- Unfortunately, despite President Cyril Ramaphosa’s pronouncements in the State of the Nation Address (SONA) just two weeks ago, there is no evidence in the budget delivered by Minister Tito Mboweni on 20 February 2019 that government is serious about ending Gender Based Violence in this country.
- If government is serious about ending Gender Based Violence, it did not come through in the budget.
