Kebalepile Sibiya, 39, is one of the people who participated.

“I decided to join the march just to show people that not all men are trash. 

"There are still good men out there. I feel proud of myself, I've done it.”

“I'm a married man and also a father to a beautiful girl so I felt it is important to participate,” Sibiya said.

He works for the Department of Science and Technology and said he was encouraged by his bosses to be among those who participated.

Mulanga Mufamadi, 24, from Mamelodi said she joined the march because of continuous femicide cases in the country.

“I am woman and the killing of women by partners breaks my heart. Also, there are a lot of children being abused everyday so I just had to be part of this,” she said.

Mufamadi said she was proud to be part of the march.
