Johannesburg, 26 April 2016 The recent anti-rape protests at Rhodes University by students and staff members highlight an important and disturbing issue in South African society, where it is estimated that one in five women are victims of rape and other forms of gender-based violence (GBV) each year.

Not only have the protests brought to the fore the scourge that is rape and GBV, they have also  sparked a call for a fundamental shift in our collective consciousness regarding the manner in which rape and GBV are dealt with, as well as how the unequal power relationships between genders should be addressed.

In the spirit of joining this call and strengthening its voice, youth leadership development organisation loveLife extends its support for the protests and its core underlying message – that we as responsible, aware and engaged citizens do not stand for rape and other forms of GBV; that we see it as our duty to protect and uphold the rights of those who have been marginalised and made vulnerable in a society that has for far too long been complicit in reinforcing unequal gender power relationships.

Ajax Cape Town can confirm the acquisition of Kenyan midfielder Victor Ali Abondo from Kenyan Premier League outfit, Gor Mahia on a two (2) year deal.

The 26-year-old midfielder enjoyed a successful training stint with the club earlier this year, which prompted head coach Roger De Sa to make Abondo’s stay in Cape Town permanent. Depending on the approval of his work permit, Abondo could still make his debut appearance in the current season.

The Kenyan playmaker helped Gor Mahia to the 2015 Kenyan Premier League with his creativity and eye for goal, however, Abondo won the Kenyan Premier League on two other occasions with Sony Sugar and Tusker respectively. Abondo becomes the fifth addition to Ajax Cape Town’s squad for the new Absa Premiership season, after Erick Chipeta put pen to paper a fortnight ago, while the club has also promoted three teenagers Masilake Phohlongo, Darren Johnson and Sirgio Kammies from the club’s prestigious youth academy. The technical team’s preparation for the 2016/17 PSL season is progressing well with further signings to be announced soon. Continue reading

SA Rugby on Monday acknowledged the findings of the Eminent Persons’ Group report on Transformation for 2014/15 and the sanction imposed by Mr Fikile Mbalula, Minister for Sports and Recreation.

SA Rugby, as well as Cricket South Africa, Netball SA and Athletics South Africa, had revoked their privilege of “hosting and bidding for major and mega international tournaments in South Africa as a consequence of…not meeting their own set transformation targets”, said the minister. The decision would be reconsidered at the next reporting of the EPG, which is expected in November.

“We understand and support the Minister’s urgency in addressing the issue of transformation,” said Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby.

“There is no question that we have more work to do and we could be moving faster, but our sport has undergone a major overhaul in how we do business and how we measure ourselves in the past two or three years and we have definitely made great progress.

“Transformation is a key strategic imperative for SA Rugby to remain competitive and to survive in the sports landscape in our country. Continue reading
