Women Forward party leader calls for castration of serial rapists
The 2019 elections will see 48 political parties taking part.
It is the highest number of political parties ever to be registered for an election in a democratic South Africa.
702's Bongani Bingwa speaks to Nana Ngobese-Nxumalo, whose Women Forward party is focusing on gender equity and equality.
Women are kinder and are more considerate of other humans around them, and I think it is imperative for me to emphasise that.Nana Ngobese-Nxumalo, Leader - Women Forward
Nxumalo says her party advocates castration for serial rapists.
Measures like castration are essential because of the high levels of crime we see against women. It's either they are killed, raped or abused, so there is a side of women that says 'enough is enough, let's take active measures to deal with these severe cases'.Nana Ngobese-Nxumalo, Leader - Women Forward
We have high levels of rape in this country, and we cannot continue philosophising on what to do - we want to see a decline.Nana Ngobese-Nxumalo, Leader - Women Forward
She says people find it easier to live in prison than on the outside and that is why the party is calling for correctional facilities to be just that, and not function as hotels.
Prisons right now are like hotels and people go to jail because they find it more comfortable in the facility. We want to make sure that R11 000 spent on a prisoner is reduced to R340.Nana Ngobese-Nxumalo, Leader - Women Forward
