Uyinene Mrwetyana Post office to Parliment

Rotary Club of Wynberg members supported the Uyinene Mrwetyana Foundation’s Post Office to Parliament campaign with a donation towards the printing of 1000 postcards that will be delivered to the Minister of Women, Children and People with disabilities at Parliment on Saturday 28 August 2021. The Club is to have 300 cards completed and delivered to parliament.

In August 2019 South Africa was shocked by a spate of murders involving young women. One of those was young UCT Student Uyinene Mrwetyana at the Clarence Post Office Cape Town in the month which in South Africa is Women’s Month . This case brought the country together to standup against Gender Based violence and led to the formation of Uyinene Mrwetyana Foundation which aims to highlight the plight of women and the need for government to take action and make this a government Priority.
