On Saturday, the #NotInMyName march in response to the multiple murders of women in South Africa by men, took place in South Africa’s capital, Pretoria. From Church Square to the Union Buildings, the official seat of the South African government, the march organized by three young men—Kholofelo Masha, Siyabulela Jentile and Obakeng Motshabi—demanded action, especially by men, on the issue of violence against women.
The march was led by “The Lady in White”—a woman who was dressed in all white, and, according to the organizers represented all women who have been victimized by men in South Africa. Among the protesters, there were some personalities such as soccer player Mathew Booth, rappers AKA and Cassper Nyovest, among others. The latter tweeted his disappointment at the fact that there weren’t any prominent politicians at the march, and that men didn’t come in large numbers.
