WOMAN TODAY SAY STOP SILENCE WE WILL NO LONGER BE THE WORLD'S DEATH STATISTICS FOR BEING BORN WOMAN. WE HAVE ALREADY MADE MANY STEPS BUT. WE HAVE A LOT TO DO CIVIL SOCIETY IN GENERAL AND AT A GLOBAL LEVEL SHOULD YES CONTINUE TO DECLARE, ORANGE IN THE WORLD... VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IS AT THE EPICENTER OF THE WORLD, AT THE CENTER OF ALL DECISIONS, WHERE THERE IS NO GENDER EQUITY, THERE IS VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN. WOMEN SUFFER GREAT DISCRIMINATION BECAUSE THEY ARE WOMEN, SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THEIR RACE OR RELIGION, WE NEED TO GIVE MORE VISIBILITY TO THIS STRUGGLE AND DECLARE THE YEAR 2030 AS OUR GOAL FOR THE END OF INEQUALITY WE NEED TO TELL THE WORLD THAT VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN IS DEVASTATING AND MAKES WOMEN PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLYILL WORLDWIDE LIKE A VIRUS. ALSO DECLARE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AN ISSUE EQUAL TO A PANDEMIC. IT IS A SERIOUS IMPEDIMENT TO FAMILY DEVELOPMENT, SUCH AS DEVELOPMENT IN SPORTS, SOCIAL, EDUCATION, HEALTH, PERSONAL PROGRESS OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY MEMBERS LIVING IN SUCH ENVIRONMENTS... WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A SERIOUS HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION AGAINST GIRLS AND WOMEN THAT AFFECT EVERYONE AROUND THEM. WITH EFFECTS THAT ARE DIFFICULT TO CONTROL. WOMAN TODAY SAYSTOP SILENCE. DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS NO LONGER A FAMILY SECRET BUT A SLOW OR SUDDEN DEATH. THERE ARE LAWS THAT DO CONDEMN IT. BUT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR AFFECTS, THE AGGRESSOR WORKING LIFE AS WELL, WHO IN THE MORNING PRESENTS HIMSELF AT WORK, AS IF THE ACT PERFORMED AT HOME WAS NOT SERIOUS. DOMESTIC AND SEXUAL VIOLENCE HAVE ACHIEVED AN IMPACT THAT CAN NO LONGER BE SILENCED OR IGNORED. I THOUGHT OF MAKING A DICTIONARY OF HUMILIATION OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: EXAMPLE: KICKING, STOMPING: IS EQUAL TO = CONTEMPT, GARBAGE. SLAPPING: IS EQUAL TO = YOU ARE WORTHLESS. ABSENCE OF SEX: IS EQUAL TO = SO YOU KNOW WHO IS THE BOSS HERE. IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO FIGHT, FOR MARGINALIZED AND DISCRIMINATED WOMEN IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO FIGHT FOR THE DOUBLE AND UNRECOGNIZED WORK, OF WOMAN,JUST FOR BIING BORN A WOMAN. WOMAN DOES NOT ACCEPT ANY KIND OF GUILT THAT IS IMPOSED ON HER. THE ONLY GUILT WILL BE NOT TO REPORT VIOLENCE. A WOMAN IS A STAR THAT TOUCHIIES OTHER STARS AND TOGETHER ALL SHINE. THANK YOU MEN FOR YOUR SENSEBILITY THANK YOU VERY MUCH DEAR COLLEAGUES.

SEVEN INDUCTED INTO THE REGION 5 SPORTS HALL OF FAME
The AUSC Region 5 Council of Ministers has inducted seven personalities into the
Region 5 Sports Hall of Fame. The decision was made by the AUSC Region 5 Council
of Ministers during their virtual Extra-ordinary meeting held on Friday 4 December 2020.
The Council of Ministers held an online meeting which was attended by six of the ten
Member Countries. Ministers of South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique and Lesotho could
not attend the meeting due to various unforeseen circumstances.
The Council of Ministers Extra-ordinary meeting was as per tradition, scheduled to be
held on the margins of the 9 th edition of the Region 5 Youth Games in Maseru, Lesotho
this year before the Games were postponed to December 2021 due to the Covid-19
pandemic.
During their deliberations, the Ministers committed to rebuild the sports industry through
stimulus response interventions and calculated risk-weighted return to play strategies.
They further committed themselves to support efforts to commercialise sport and
gradually move away from over-reliance on government subventions and fiscal
dependency. The Ministers challenged each Member Country to account for their
actions in the implementation of approved Regional programmes and activities. They
made an emphatic statement on their commitment to transform sport into a viable
economic industry that stimulates business investment and creates a corridor for
accelerated youth empowerment and employment creation, social cohesion and social
capital beneficiation.
Among the many significant decisions made by the Council during their meeting was the
ratification of the election of the new Secretariat that was elected during the AUSC
Region 5 Executive Committee meeting held on Friday 27 November 2020. The newly
elected members of the Secretariat will now be Mr. Moreetsi Imon Bogosi of Botswana
as Chairperson. He replaces Dr. Vetumbuavi Veii of Namibia. Mr. Raphael Mulenga of
Zambia assumes the position of Vice Chairperson replacing Mr. George Jana of Malawi.
Mrs. Eugenia Chidhakwa of Zimbabwe was elected Chairperson of the Sports
Development Technical Commission replacing Dr. Antonio Gomes of Angola. Mr.
Lawrence Buyani Mthethwa was re-elected in the position of Chairperson Finance and
Marketing Commission. All four members of the Secretariat were elected unopposed.
The Council also ratified members to be inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame which will
be part of the Region 5 Museum being established in Zimbabwe. These are Ms. Maria
Mutola (Mozambique), Dr. Kirsty Coventry (Zimbabwe), Reverend Dr. Makhenkesi
Arnold Stofile - Posthumously (South Africa), Ms. Matilda Mwaba (Zambia), Mr Robert
Magagula (Eswatini), Mr Joel Lubombo (Mozambique) and Mr Boyce Sebetela
(Botswana).
The Ministers further approved the Region’s Organisational Re-engineering Model
(3S+P) which will see Region 5 transforming its strategy, structure, skills and

programmes in the process of business process revitalization. A notable change in the
Region 5 structure under this model will be the introduction of a Board of Advisors which
will comprise of Permanent Secretaries while the current Executive Committee will be
reconstituted into six functional commissions. The model is expected to streamline
business processes and stimulate sustainable development of sport. Key among the
areas of attention will be the need to commercialise sports business offerings and to
ensure that Member Countries win medals at major international competitions in the
medium to long term future.
In addition to the above, the Ministers ratified the Confederations Assistance
Programme guidelines. These guidelines provide a framework from which the Region
and Member Countries can support the functioning of Region 5 recognised regional
sports confederations. This is in line with the decision of the Council of Ministers made
in November 2013 that regional sports confederations would be supported in order to
function including in the areas of provision of office space, development of strategic
plans, event hosting and marketing management capacity building. The decision was
reconfirmed during the Council of Ministers meeting in 2019.
The meeting also received reports from the Deputy Principal Secretary of Lesotho on
behalf of the Minister as well as from Honourable Msungama from Malawi giving
updates on their respective countries’ preparations for the hosting of the Lesotho 2021
and Malawi 2022 Region 5 Youth Games. The reports were well received.
Honourable Dr. Kirsty Coventry was also given an opportunity to share Zimbabwe’s
Athlete relief Fund initiative that saw athletes being cushioned from the debilitating
effects of Covid-19 pandemic.
The Council of Ministers meets every two years in an ordinary meeting. However, every
Games year, the Council takes advantage of availability of members for the opening
ceremony of the Games to convene an extra-ordinary meeting. The Council of
Ministers ordinary meeting is scheduled for 2 December 2021 on the margins of the 9 th
edition of the Region 5 Youth Games which are scheduled to be held from 3 to 12
December 2022.
