North West Premier Thandi Modise has
suggested that chemical castration of perpetrators of sexual violence might
serve as a deterrent to reduce the scourge of rape.
Modise has vowed to lead a campaign to lobby
for chemical castration given the unacceptable high levels of rape.
Modise spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said Premier
Modise who herself is a victim of rape in her teens has vowed to lead a campaign
to lobby for chemical castration given the unacceptable level that the scourge
has reached across the country.
Kgwele adds the premier announced that she
will embark on a crusade and reiterated her call for real men to stand up to be
counted against the scourge of rape at the inauguration of the newly nominated provincial
council on Aids held in Mafikeng.
