While I support much of the bill, I am concerned about the registration of victims, and the registration of those who can counsel/support victims. Our governmental systems are already fraught with bureaucracy and this could potentially lead to decreased access to these much needed services by victims.

We should always be supportive of victims that are in need of our help, we are all equil and it can happen to anyone at any time, so let us help each other where needed.

Many marginalised people including women, members of the LGBQT community, children and people living with disabilities have been failed by the law and continue being failed by the law. Perpetrators know this and will not hesitate bragging to their victims about going to the law because they know the law will fail them.

Victims are not being given the justice they deserve. I know of several people abused (including his own child) by one particular guy. Every time one of his victims musters the courage to lay a charge he gets off by either a 4 hour diversion program or 'no witness's' in a domestic violence GBH case. So bad that the girl committed suicide. He is given no repercussions deserving his behaviour. He also threatens as he pleases to have his way. No Justice towards woman and children! The day our law protects the perpetrator and not the victim is a sad and shameful day for all South Africa

A victim us a victim!

Remember men and woman gets raped and assaulted by woman and men !!!!!!!!!

1. Writing a law every time the government wants to show their support will not help and is waste of time and money.
2. People are people and should not be seen as deferent, thus whether a man or woman gets raped or assaulted the law must be clear and the same.
3. "Creating deference's cause friction that make explosions' eminent"

Rather:
a: Ensure available facility's and support by trained personnel for victims
b: ensure courts cases do not extend more than 6 month
c: remove the wrights of criminals and give hard labor in prison, creating fear for criminals.

NB: a person doing crime, removing the rights to safety from someone else thus one of the punishments should be that he or she should also lost their rights!

Criminals have far too many rights hence one of the reasons for all the crime. Victims must have rights!

Our country MUST recognise and acknowledge that these social issues are way beyond just implementing LAWS to control human behaviour. It has not worked and it will only fill up the already sad, bad prisons. Call on leaders who are faithful, honest and committed to human advancement for answers.

All GBV cases should have a minimum of 50 years per sentence and NOT to run concurrently.
The victims of a GBV case should be given R 1m rand as compensation that the state was unable to protect them.
Unfortunately the mind set of the South African male has to be changed from "I am superior to a female so I can do anything to them" to "I am a male which has to protect the female" .

I cannot support a legislation that discriminates against white people and foreign nationals. I did not support it under apart-hate system and I do not support it now.
