Shukumisa Campaign

In December 2007 the Sexual Offences Act was amended to include a new legal definition of rape and an expanded list of types of sexual offences including human trafficking for sexual exploitation, compelling others to commit offences and so on.  Rape Crisis together with active members of the Sexual Offences Act Working Group have embarked on a campaign to educate all South Africans about this new legislation, their rights under its law and the services within the Criminal Justice System to which they should have access.  This is the Shukumisa Campaign to shake up the thinking of the nation in respect of sexual offences.
