Masimanyane welcomes 2018 Peace Prize announcement

Masimanyane welcomes the decision to award the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize to anti-rape activists Nadia Murad and Dr Denis Mukwege.

Ms Murad is an Iraqi Yazidi who was tortured and raped by Islamic State militants and later became the face of a campaign to free the Yazidi people.

Dr Mukwege is a Congolese gynaecologist who, along with his colleagues, has performed thousands of reconstructive surgeries to repair damage inflicted on women who have been raped.
