Nomzamo Mbatha also went on her Instagram to say that she was honoured to have the opportunity of addressing the assembly.

“I had the honour of delivering a speech at this year’s UN General Assembly as part of the High Level event: BEIJING 25

“It is an incredible honour to be a part of something so monumental. As a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, human migration is a global crisis that puts woman and girls in danger of so many social ills of society including being used as weapons of war.

“The genocide that is gender-based violence that continues to plague not only South African women but women on the continent as a whole is an urgent crisis. With the world being in the thick and middle of a pandemic, it threatened a lot of important events to be cancelled.

“However, the agenda can never be postponed. Equal rights for all women and girls remains a human rights crisis. Beijing +25 is necessary, urgent and a true call to action for all members of society and every sector to make Generation Equality a cornerstone. To make the necessary pledges to eradicating the discrimination against women and girls everywhere.

“It is pleasing to know that it is placed as a High Level event at this year’s UN General Assembly #UNGA75 #Beijing25,” Nomzamo wrote.
