Despite the mixed feelings and hiccups, the #MTCKnockOut project drew a crowd.
The event that took place at the Country Club resort saw the resort filled with people who came to witness 18 male artists and public figures throwing punches at each other in an attempt to bring awareness to gender-based violence against women in the country.
From selling out the show tickets both for general access which costed N$250 each, VIP tickets costing N$ 1000, and VIP table N$ 10 000 leading to an additional 100 provisional general access tickets made available by popular demand, to auctioning off signed gloves worn by former world champion Harry Simon in 2002 at an international fight.
The gloves were auctioned off at N$22 501 to Unomengi Kauapirura from Social security and 50% of the money will go to a charity that supports GBV causes.
Speaking at the end of the event, MTC’s Chief of Human Capital and Corporate Affairs, Tim Ekandjo called on every individual to start doing their part in fight GVB.
“Today was fun and games, we sent a strong message against GBV but everyone should do their parts. You see the biggest problem with us as a country, as a society, we like to talk and we do nothing. This is time for action and everyone should do something,” he noted.
