Mamelodi Sundowns forward Lebohang Maboe has spoken out against gender-based violence in South Africa and urged men to take responsibility.
The country is currently faced with a very challenging period in the fight against gender-based violence threatening women and children.
The Sundowns forward has urged all men to play their role to end the abuse of women in the country.
"Let's protect mothers, let's protect our sisters, aunts and every woman in our country, let's keep children safe," Maboe tells KickOff.com.
"Knowing that gender-based violence is a threat to peace and security in our country right now, we don't want to see our women walking around feeling unsafe and threatened."
Women in South Africa are currently living in fear because of the danger they find themselves in everywhere they go, and Maboe believes it is about time the whole country came together to make sure women are comfortable and safe.
"They deserve a life of respect, dignity and freedom. Let's stop the violence against women and children, let's protect them."
