Today we are gathered at the very same place when we launched the Provincial Call to action earlier on the first of June. I am encouraged by the event and the stand taken by our women in the armed forces who today once again re iterate their commitment to fight women and child abuse. I am honoured that through your presence here today, you are joining the clarion call that says not in my name shall the lives of our women and children be threatened, not in my name shall I stand by idly and watch our children, women and elderly be subjected to abuse and violence.
