King Misizulu said Gender-Based Violence is a generational curse that must end now.

The Zulu King Misuzulu kaZwelithini delivered a speech at the Eyerus function and called the ongoing Gender-based violence a generational cure that needs to be broken. He was speaking at a launch of a gender-based violence App Eyerus, which is looking at helping victims of violence secretly record when they are exposed to dangerous situations.

This will allow them to share location with their families and security will be sent to help them. The app is fully supported by the government. Gender-based violence is a great pandemic worse than Sonoma that eats the very soul of our society. It has come a long way since our Fathers lived and has become more ill than before. Women and children are mercilessly killed by those who claim to love them.

The Zulu King said that as the new King and fitting into those new shoes, every time he stands to speak to the people in an interview or to deliver a speech, or just to encourage his warriors on how to be real men, he never leaves the part about gender-based violence. This is one thing that concerns him a lot and he does not want his subjects to be involved in any such behavior. The king said traditionally the Zulu people had great respect for women and children. King Misuzulu said that the land of Zulu is known as elikaMthaniya, which is a woman who is held with high regard. Women and children are always protected in Zululand.

Solving initiatives to not fully depend on the government. The king said his new wife Queen Ntokozo Mayisela had started a program that helped groom young Zulu men to be good men. They are also taught to become good husbands one day. How to protect their wives and children, as well as how to portray a good picture and be examples to the society at large, and work hard to rid it of the plagued problems by this pandemic. The king also said traditional leaders were not only concerned with GBV but were also increasingly concerned about the Covid-19 pandemic. It becomes a very big concern to traditional leaders when they e coming from generations dealing with the HIV pandemic.
