Protect Women

A DA-led national government will change the system and professionalise the South African Police Service (SAPS) to create a safe environment for all South Africans.


  • Properly trained SAPS officers to deal with victims of rape and other sensitive crimes.
  • Rapid handling and investigation of rape cases.
  • Specialised units focusing on safe streets.
  • More school outreach programmes focusing on child safety.
  • Specialised sexual crimes units that work with victims with mental or physical disabilities.
  • Stricter border control to combat human trafficking.
  • Harsher punishment for SAPS officers who contravene their obligation towards victims of heinous crimes.
  • Compulsory sensitivity training on an annual basis to all SAPS members.


Petition to remove the KZN Health MEC after cancer scandal

KZN Health MEC, Sibongiseni Dhlomo, and his department have been found guilty of violating the rights of cancer patients to proper treatment at two of the province’s biggest public hospitals.

Sign this petition to join our call for his removal.

This comes after a damning report by the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) into the province’s oncology crisis cemented the issue.

The KZN Health MEC has repeatedly shown that he is incapable of restoring proper treatment to cancer sufferers, a situation that is being compounded by KZN Premier Willies Mchunu’s ongoing refusal to take action against him.

We cannot let an elite circle of ANC members be protected as more cancer patients suffer and die.

Sign this petition to join our call for his removal.

Stop Farm Murders NOW

Crime and violence threatens and dehumanises all people in farming and rural communities, irrespective of their race.

Recently, two people were heartlessly murdered on farms near Vryburg. Mr Patrick Itumeng was fatally shot on his farm, Friesland, outside Vryburg; and the body of Mrs Elsa Erasmus was found by her friends after an attacker abducted her on her farm between Amalia and Vryburg.

Every South African deserves to feel safe.

Sign the petition to see this plan tabled in Parliament!

We are calling on the South African Government to take action:

  1. Rural Safety Units must be implemented immediately – at least five rural units of approximately 20 members.
  2. Farm attacks must be classified as priority crimes so that more resources can be allocated to Rural Safety Units.
  3. Rural Safety Units must be permanently deployed to clearly identified crime “hotspots” on a rotating basis.
  4. Units must be trained to carry out undercover operations; road blocks; observation posts; and search and seizure operations, with rapid response capability, to allow for the swift apprehension of suspected criminals.
  5. A toll-free contact number must be made available for people in rural parts of South Africa so that they can report suspicious activity or threats.

Farming communities are at high risk. Data from the South African Institute for Race Relations shows that they are disproportionately vulnerable to violent crimes and robberies.

Enough is enough.
