We dissect the objectives of the Kuhluka Movement. The movement was established by Josina Machel (she was motivated by a personal incident of abuse that she endured late last year at the hands of her partner at the time). Kuhluka seeks to find a platform that prevents abuse of women by bringing custodians of culture together to find ways that interrogate harmful practices and traditions, and questions the behaviours that foster an environment that tolerates violence towards women.
