These words were uttered by Eastern Cape Premier Pumulo Masualle during the provincial Men’s Parliament that was hosted by the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM) in the old Woolboard Exchange, Military Road, on Tuesday, 13 November 2018 – all with the focus on mobilising the men of the Eastern Cape and the role they could and should play in combating HIV and AIDS.
Premier Musualle vowed to play a role in ensuring that the necessary government resources would be channeled to support this initiative. He also urged the media to play a crucial role in calling upon all men to change their mentalities and join initiatives of this nature in their communities.
