THE SOUTH African Women Lawyer Association (Sawla) in the Northern Cape will host its annual general meeting on June 4 at the Horseshoe Motel in Kimberley and embark on a recruitment campaign to urge young female law students to join the organisation.
The session will be addressed by Sawla president Nomagugu Mahlangu, Northern Cape Premier Dr Zamani Saul and guest speaker and GBV activist Gregory Nyongane.
Sawla secretary-general, advocate Kelly Nxumalo said the organisation, which has members that include judges, magistrates, attorneys, advocates, state law advisers, corporate lawyers, prosecutors, academics, law students and paralegals, would also hold a gender-based violence (GBV) drive and social responsibility programme on June 4, where food parcels would be handed out to the elderly and child-headed households.
“A visit will be paid to the home of the lady who was allegedly killed by her partner in Floors, where a wreath-laying ceremony will be held. The South African Police Service will collaborate with us in this cause so we can make the community aware of the GBV issues faced by the community,” Nxumalo added.
