3. South Africa: Unathi Nkayi takes aim at SA men on their silence over GBV
Singer Unathi Nkayi has penned a letter to South African men concerning their silence towards gender-based violence and the safety of women in the country. With the annual 16 Days of Activism against GBV campaign underway, the Idols SA judge pointed out how quiet many South African men continue to be when it comes to the issue.
Taking to Instagram, Unathi shared a black picture with the words “Dear men, may your daughters meet guys like you” with a kissy emoji on it. The picture was joined with a caption that explained why she was posting the message. “This spoke to me in both ways. There are so many amazing men I know and many not so amazing. But allow me to keep it to one specific theme, your silence which is so loud when it comes to GBV and our safety.”
4. Ghana: Retired MPs not entitled to any pension – Supreme Court
The Supreme Court has ruled that retired Members of Parliament (MPs) do not have any constitutional right to receive any pension. Rather, the court held that retired MPs are entitled to gratuities (which the court described as lump-sum payments) as stipulated in Article 114 of the 1992 constitution. In a unanimous decision Thursday, December 3, 2020, a seven-member panel of the apex court upheld that the Chinnery-Hesse Committee that recommended the payment of pensions to MPs who retired from 2005-2008 acted unconstitutionally.
“By the combined reading of Article 71(3), 98(1) and Article 114 of the 1992 Constitution, the Chinnery-Hesse Committee acted unconstitutionally,” the court held.
