This new division, a first of its kind in South Africa, is an offer of protection, monitoring and accountability for children in South Africa who have been or may be affected by abuse in SPORT.

Our work on the landmark sexual abuse case of Bob Hewitt (former professional tennis player and Grand Slam title holder), the Parktown boy sexual abuse and rape case by the water polo coach ( Collan Rex) and the ongoing sexual abuse at Bryanston High School case by netball coach (Aleshan Moodley), showed the challenges faced by victims, prompting the establishment of this initiative to pledge to make the sport safe for children.

Voices in South African sport have been raised to support this project. Our panel includes Simphiwe Dludlu (Soccer), Olivia Jasriel (Survivor of abuse in Sport), Miranda Jordan (WMACA – Founder), Luke Lamprecht (WMACA – Advocacy) and Babalwa Latsha (Rugby)

In attendance will be Corne Krige (former Springbok Rugby captain), Kalusha Bwalya (former Zambian international footballer), Kgothatso Montjane (tennis), Gert Strydom (professional boxing coach) Tebogo Moloi (football), Cara Frew (equestrian), Sipho Ngwenya (Boxing), Barend van Graan (former CEO of Blue Bulls), Neils Momberg (Cricket) Lwandile Simelane (Chairman of the SASCOC Gender Commission and Ria Ledwaba (Vice-Chairman of SAFA)

Other recommendations include video support from Tendai “Beast” Mtawarira (South African rugby), Benni Mccarthy (South African footballer), Penny Heyns (Olympic 100m and 200m breaststroke holder).

Interviews with invited participants will be arranged after the launch.
