On Saturday, at the event hosted by Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba’s wife, Norma, and her foundation, boys were urged to be resilient in their quest to build healthy communities.
Vivian Reddy and Black Business Council vice-president Sandile Zungu attended the event.
Gigaba said the focus was on boys because she felt that they were neglected. “We cannot fold our arms and watch them ruining opportunities of creating a better society. Men are called all sorts of names, more recently #MenAreTrash.
“It is wrong. We should be building them up, not breaking their souls and the values they have in their hearts. Not all men are trash. Such programmes will help transit new changes for a healthy society.”
