  1. Prevalence
    • According to the report by the United Nations Office on Crimes and Drugs for the period 1998–2000, South Africa was ranked first for rapes per capital
    • A survey from the comprehensive study “Rape in South Africa” from 2000 indicated that 2.1% of women aged 16 years or older across population groups reported that they had been sexually abused at least once between the beginning of 1993 and March 1998
    • Similarly, The South African demographic and health survey of 1998 gave results of rape prevalence at 4.0% of all women aged between 15 and 49 years in the sampled households (a survey also performed by the Medical Research Council and Department of Health).
  2. Violence Against Women
    • The South African government reports that one of these reasons is the culture of patriarchy in South Africa. Its report states that patriarchy is firmly rooted in Black culture and fighting it is seen as attempting to destroy South African tradition or South African ideals.
    •  The danger from rape and sexual assault is compounded because of the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in South African townships. A woman being raped over the age of 25 has a one in four chance that her attacker is HIV positive and more women than men are affected from HIV/AIDS.
    • The perpetrators of rape in South Africa tend to be men known to the victim. It is reported that a husband or boyfriend kills a woman every six hours in South Africa.
    • Many men and women say that rape cannot occur in relationships; however, one in four women reported having been abused by an intimate partner.
  3. Violence against infants
    • Virgin
      • A significant contributing factor for the escalation in child abuse is the widespread myth in HIV ravaged South Africa that having sex with a virgin will cure a man of AIDS.
      • This virgin cleansing myth exists in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Nigeria.The child abusers are often relatives of their victims and are at times their fathers or providers.
  4. Corrective Rape
    • Lesbians in certain parts of South Africa also face a dangerous environment. Raping lesbians (a practice referred to as corrective rape) is believed to convert them to heterosexuality.
    • One notable case of this was the gang-rape and murder of Eudy Simelane, a member of the South African football team and LGBT-rights activist.  Lesbians have died from these attacks in the last 10 years and more than 10 lesbians per week are raped or gang-raped in Cape Town alone.
  5. Report
    • It is estimated that over 40% of South African women will be raped in their lifetime and that only 1 in 4 rapes are reported

            • The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Rights of Communities is soon set to create a regulatory organisation for churches not belonging to any current regulatory body. This is light of several cases of charismatic pastors using controversial teaching methods. In the latest case, Nigerian pastor Tim Omotoso is accused of sexual assault. However, Nigerian pastors in South Africa are being monitored, and to talk to us more about this, we were joined in studio by the Vice President of the Nigerian Pastors Association in South Africa, Pastor O.C Festus, as well as the National President, Bishop Ranti Famodun
