MISOGYNIST 'TIMES' WRITER UNDER ATTACK

From Swazi Media Commentary Tue Dec 11 2012, 08:33:00

The Times Sundaynewspaper columnist who wrote that battered women only had themselves to blame when they were attacked has been criticised by a leading Swaziland human rights organisation

Qalakaliboli Dlamini had written this week (9 December 2012) that women abuse men more than the other way around.

Dlamini had also written that the serial killer David Simelane, recently sentenced to hang for the murder of 32 women, might have been driven to the crimes because he was once falsely accused of rape by a woman.

Dlamini was the centre of attention at a commemoration of International Human Rights Day held in Swaziland yesterday (10 December 2012). His was criticised by Coordinating Assembly for Non-Governmental Organisations (CANGO) Director Emmanuel Ndlangamandla who said Dlamini's comments were 'unacceptable'.
