President Cyril Ramaphosa says he will address the entire nation in an on Thursday afternoon about the plan to deal with gender-based violence.
Ramaphosa was speaking to the hundreds of #AmINext protesters gathered outside Parliament in Cape Town on Wednesday after accepting a memorandum from a hostile crowd.
"I know you are saying enough is enough. I agree with you that indeed enough is enough. In one hour I will be addressing the entire nation on the measures that we are now going to embark upon."
Ramaphosa promised he would reveal concrete plans to deal with gender-based violence including life sentences for men who rape and kill women.
"Men who rape and kill women must stay in jail for life. Men who do all these things do not belong in society. They belong behind bars. We'll change laws that once you rape a woman, you'll get life".IOL
