Dear Rita

In commenting on the issue of proof of residence for women, Justice Makarau said ‘They can register to vote by getting a letter from their husband confirming they still reside with him. If you are not in good books you can still register by depositing an affidavit yourself. There is confusion between an affidavit and an affirmation, but yes, people can affirm where they reside and this will help homeless women. No one will be denied the right to get registered.' There were many problems with her sentiments made on the day but this article will confine itself to her statement on women and proof of residence.
