Parliament - GOOD leader and Minister of Public Works Patricia de Lille has announced that they will release buildings that will be used to shelter victims of gender-based violence.
De Lille told Parliament on Wednesday, during the debate on gender-based violence, that they have noted that most of the women who stay in abusive relationships do not have anywhere else to go.
Parliament is having a joint sitting called by President Cyril Ramaphosa following a spate of killings of women and children.
Crime statistics have shown that sexual offences increased by 4.6%.
De Lille said the country was bleeding because of these crimes against women and children. She said the women were under attack from men.
