The Commission has called on Sadtu to formally apologise for disgracing Motshekga.

"It's very serious. It says we objectify women as South Africans. We do not respect woman. We dehumanize woman in a public space because we cannot get what we want," said Javu Baloyi of the Commission for Gender Equality

Sadtu is calling for the minister’s resignation because it says it’s been left out of collective bargaining.
