The SAPS Social Worker Warrant Officer Kekae gave a presentation about domestic violence where he encouraged men to stop domestic violence and to teach their children the truth about domestic violence. He has further encouraged all police officers to prevent incidents of domestic violence at all costs and to support each other in case one fell a victim of this phenomenon and to treat the victims of domestic violence with respect and dignity.

The motivational speaker, Mr Amos Mothiba encouraged all men to demand a fatherhood and make the following commitments:

*I change. Delete everything. Don't be controlled by 15min. Remember 15min can cost your marriage. It is not by mistake to be a man. God choose you. Be the father of your children and a hero. Real father and real men don't abuse.
