[LISTEN] SA's femicide rate 5 times higher than any other country

| SA’s femicide rate is five times higher than any other country in the world, according to Minister of Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa.

JOHANNESBURG - South Africa’s femicide rate is five times higher than any other country in the world and this has compelled the United Nations to propose Femicide Watch for the country.

This is according to Minister of Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa, who was speaking at the Anti-femicide Imbizo which was held at the Regina Mundli Catholic Church in Soweto on Friday.

Radio 702’s Breakfast show host Xolani Gwala reflects on this alarming rate.
