Andy Kawa (Kwanele-Enuf) – The Activist
Businesswoman and rape activist Andy Kawa started Kwanele-Enuf Foundation after a gruesome gang-rape ordeal two and a half years ago.
In Andy’s Own Words
“In despair after my ordeal I was inspired by former President Nelson Mandela in Broken Bones and Broken Bodies: violence against women exposed’ where he commented as follows:”
“Safety and security do not just happen; they are a result of a collective consensus and public investment. We owe it to our children – the most vulnerable citizens of society – a life free from violence and fear. In order to ensure this, we must become tireless in our efforts not only to attain peace, justice and prosperity for countries but for communities and members of the same community. We must address the roots of violence. Only then will we transform the past legacy from a crushing burden into a cautionary lesson.” (NR Mandela)
“I believe that as a Society we need healing and reconciliation as the cases of rape and sexual abuse run deep in the social fabric of our society. We can attain this healing and begin a new era in South Africa where women, men and children live freely without the fear of rape and molestation and where rape and sexual violence in an exception instead of the norm.
The work of transformation has to start in the smallest places, which is our homes, where we protect our children, the handicapped and our elderly – the vulnerable of our society. From families this transformation will move to our communities, schools, organization and the greater Society.
We have a Constitution that upholds the rights safety and security, to human dignity, justice and protection of children and vulnerable of society. Currently, rape and sexual abuse negated the values enshrined in the Constitution, and Kwanele-Enuf intends to mobilize the greater society, judiciary and government to work together to make the Constitution a reality that can be upheld by the South African Society.
