JOHANNESBURG - The InnerMan Institute and the Limpopo House of Traditional Leaders say they are concerned about a high number of ritual killings in the province, especially of women.

The institute, together with the provincial government and the house, held a colloquium on Sunday afternoon in Polokwane as part of Mandela Month to talk to men to stop violence against women and children.

The country has been faced with high levels of violence, killings of women and children and many other social ills.
Some of the women killed in Limpopo were mutilated as part of ritual killings.

The institute says men who abuse or kill women and children must ask themselves if this is what Nelson Mandela fought for.

Institute’s COO Ndaedzo Nethonzhe said, “We want the province of Limpopo to have an identity and a legacy that is left following in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela. We should ask ourselves a question: Are we the people of Limpopo want to leave a legacy that says men in our province are killers of our women?”
