International Rugby Referee

As a responsible South African, I think it is necessary to acknowledge that we have a problem in this realm... and it is a big problem. As a public figure who has represented South Africa on the sports fields abroad, I would be lying if I said that I was proud of everything we as a nation have achieved. With our high crime statistics, we need to all be making some sort of effort to make our country a better place to live. As a male, I am appalled by the high incidence of rape and rape related crime and violence. The education and awareness of a major issue such as this is paramount. I am proud to be a Blow The Whistle ambassador and look forward to working closely with the intitative to help combat this critical issue.
