The Hartswater FCS meanwhile observed 16 Days of Activism on Friday, November 26, where Sergeant Thabapelo addressed 20 adults and 20 children on gender-based violence and the impact it has on the community.

Northern Cape police spokesperson Colonel Mashay Gamieldien said that Dr Tshentshenge, a medical doctor at Hartswater Hospital, spoke about the trauma they experienced when dealing with GBV assault victims and the impact and strain it puts on hospital resources.

“FCS units in the Province have been celebrating 16 Days of Activism with communities and restoring the dignity of victims of sexual abuse,” added Gamieldien.
