The justice, crime prevention and security cluster said this while detailing its plans in Parliament yesterday to deal with gender-based violence
Defence and Military Veterans minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula said the cluster noted the high level of sexual offences at institutions of higher learning. “To address this matter, Police Minister Bheki Cele has been tasked to convene a meeting with all vice-chancellors to reassess campus security,” she said.
Mapisa-Nqakula said victim support and services would be strengthened.
The National Prosecuting Authority and the police had been instructed to review and update the anti-rape and sexual gender-based violence (GBV) policy. She said to date the government had in place 92 sexual offences courts and 11 would be finalised by the end of the financial year, with one opening this weekend in Limpopo.
