IFP: CALLS FOR AN INDABA TO STOP CHILD MURDERS

The IFP in KwaZulu calls on government to urgently arrange an Indaba, which
will bring together all stakeholders from all walks of life, to discuss the
killing of children after the body of a mutilated three-year-old boy was
found in a disused room at St John’s Church in Pongola.

“It is with utter disgust that we continue to witness these atrocities in
our communities. This shows that many have no conscience,” said IFP
Spokesperson on Social Development, Mrs Ncamisile Nkwanyana.

“While nothing can reverse the horror that this violence has brought to the
family of the young boy, as a society we can ensure that the perpetrators
face the full wrath of the law and that justice is seen to be done,”
continued Nkwanyana.

“We further call on government, especially the National Department of Women
and Children along with provincial Departments of Social Development, to
roll out awareness campaigns and engage communities in dialogue to educate
and address behavioural and attitudinal problems in our society,” concluded
Nkwanyana.
