This week the country began the primary week of the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and youngsters campaign.

President Cyril Ramaphosa said all sectors of society should play their part in the fight against gender-based violence (GBV).

Taking to Twitter, Siv suggested that creating the sex offenders list available could help fight the scourge of GBV and femicide.

He added by making the list available, sex offenders would be named and shamed.

“If someone may be a convict, we must all know,” he said. “The sex offenders list must be available to the general public and updated by the police.”

Siv said men got to change which their “silence is violence”.

He also agreed with One SA leader Mmusi Maimane that the sexual offenses register should be made accessible online and each police headquarters should have a fanatical computer where people could check if they don’t have internet.

Last week, police minister Bheki Cele said 94 rapists were sentenced to captivity between July and September.

According to Cele, quite 8,000 women reported rapes during this era and lots of of those occurred publicly in places like parks, beaches, and open fields.

He said out of the 8,000, the bulk was either raped in their homes or at the homes of their partners.

“Since the relaunch of the family violence, child protection, and sexual offenses unit, we managed to possess 5,534 people sentenced to captivity. Between July and September, 94 people were sentenced to captivity,” said Cele.
