Namibian personalities engage in GBV conversations

Women are not rehabilitation for men, enough is enough.

Various celebrities took to their different social mediums striving to find a solution to the rapid increase of gender-based violence that is heightening where each day, one more gruesome than the last one.
This conversation came to light recently when the news broke about two sisters who lost their lives.

Celebrities such as Sunny boy, Maria Nepembe, Jack and Dillish Mathews took to their various social media accounts to show concerns with the recent social ills and some opened the floor for discussions with followers. Sunny Boy urged fellow men to join him in advocating for the safety of women and children.

The cry for help campaign which runs through all social media sees, socialites, asking questions such as, Am I next? is my sister next? Is my cousin next? Please stop killing our women. Maria Nepembe who is also involved in a campaign with her gym Fit City took to her Twitter asking when it will end.

The gents also came through as well by coming forth to introduce themselves and the females in their lives and asking fellow men to love; care and protect our women. Rapper J Black on his Instagram page uploaded a picture with words screaming ‘stop hurting our women’ with the caption that read its that simple.

The million-dollar question that still stands here, is if campaigns, tweets as well as raising awareness is going to work to show some of these men that all their doing is wrong what else can be done? Where else can a solution solve this brutality be found?
Hopefully, the MTC boxing for change campaign can bring change and peace once and for all and reduce the number of innocent women and children we are losing in the hands of cruel men.
