“We want to reiterate that despite the silence of corporate leaders in the midst of this national crisis and their continued business-as-usual attitude in the midst of the scourge of violence against women and girls; we will no longer allow them to continue with the facade of being ‘innocent bystanders’,” the movement said in a statement.

South Africa has been gripped by ongoing gender-based violence and attacks on foreign nationals.

A number of women have been brutally killed recently.
