ostmasburg : Months of tension between the Postmasburg community and the two mines, Kumba Iron Ore Kolomela mine and Assmang Beeshoek mine, culminated in an initially peaceful march on 04 July 2013. About 70 unemployed workers protested about outsiders being given employment over local people. Tension mounted and by 11:00 the entrances and exits to the mines were blocked by the protesters. Cluster Commander Lieutenant-Colonel Dries Witbooi of the SAPS facilitated between the Tsantsabane Unemployment Forum (TUF) and the mining companies. Handwritten memoranda were handed to representatives of the mines outlining grievances relating to their dishonourment of agreements from various previous meetings to appoint locals. By 12:48, Public Order Police used stun grenades and rubber bullets to disperse the protesters. The tension started two years ago when community members from the various residential areas handed a memorandum and CVs to Kolomela mine. The promised feedback never materialised. The main grievance is that the mining groups are allegedly still appointing people from other towns and cities and claim that local people do not have the required skills and knowledge. Hundreds of local matriculants are still unemployed and the parents are
very emotional because their children cannot find work. According to TUF, locals are not appointed even though there is an agreement between Beeshoek mine and the Tsantsabane municipality to do so. TUF also claims that people from Namaqualand and other Anglo American mines come to Postmasburg and that their relatives are appointed at Kolomela and Beeshoek mines without those vacancies having been advertised. It is rumoured that at both mines, certain positions are ear-marked for whites only and management positions are filled by “imported whites”. According to TUF, people from Postmasburg also apply for those positions, but never reach the short list. TUF was formed recently to act as a mouthpiece between the unemployed and the two mines to ensure that the unemployed youth of Postmasburg are considered for appointment. By 15:00 on Thursday 04 July 2013 both mines had responded, Kolomela stating that it would within five working days. Beeshoek mine acknowledged that they already complied with the social welfare investment program in conjunction with the municipality which includes internships and skills development. The protesters said they are not going to rest until Postmasburg residents are prioritised when appointments are made.

perasie Khanyisa het onlangs bevestig dat 'n saak teen vyf boere in die Jan Kempdorp-area in die NoordKaap deur die polisie ondersoek word in verband met aanklagte van elektrisiteitsdiefstal. Die verdagtes het op Woensdag 26 Junie 2013 vir die eerste keer in die Jan Kempdorp Distrikshof verskyn. Hulle staar sewe aanklagte van kwaadwillige saakbeskadiging en 262 aanklagte van bedrog, alternatiewelik diefstal, in die gesig. Die totale waarde van die bedrogaanklagte beloop R388 552. Dit is een van die eerste sake in verband met elektrisiteitsdiefstal in die groot kraggebruiker-sektor wat in Suid-Afrika aangehoor sal word, wat bevestig dat elektrisiteitsdiefstal nie net 'n probleem in die residensiële sektor is nie. Dit is 'n misdaad wat alle sektore van die Suid-Afrikaanse samelewing teister, en sluit in voorstede en townships, besighede, handel, nywerheid en landbou. Eskom se energieverliese as gevolg van elektrisiteitsdiefstal beloop
jaarliks bykans R2-miljard. Die syfer vir SuidAfrika as 'n geheel, wat insluit verliese gely deur munisipaliteite, is na raming minstens dubbel die Eskom-syfer. Sedert sy loodsing in 2010 het Operasie Khanyisa egter SuidAfrika tot aan die voorpunt van die stryd teen elektrisiteitsdiefstal gedryf. Daar was onder andere in 2011 'n toonaangewende Hoërhofuitspraak gelewer teen twee verdagtes waar aanklagte van uitbuiting vir die eerste keer ondersoek is in 'n elektrisiteitsdiefstalvervolging. Die twee mans wat vervolgens skuldig bevind is aan elektrisiteitsdiefstal en uitbuiting is 'n gekombineerde vonnis van 111 jaar opgelê, en daar is beslag gelê op hulle bates. Verdere wetstoepassingsuksesse oor die afgelope drie jaar wat verband hou met elektrisiteitsdiefstal sluit in 76 931 kragpunte wat deur Eskom afgesny is weens onwettige aansluitings en meters waaraan gepeuter is. Die nutsonderneming het sowat R43-miljoen se boetes vir peutering uitgereik, en meer as R200-miljoen in inkomste
Department urges Egyptians to resolve the present crisis through inclusive dialogue within the relevant national legal framework that seeks to consolidate the democratic achievements made by Egypt in January 2011. South African citizens currently in Egypt and those intending to travel to that country should consider their stay or plans based on the prevailing situation in Egypt. All non-essential personnel and families attached to the South African Embassy in Cairo will be temporarily withdrawn until the situation allows for their return. The Embassy will, however, remain open and continue to render consular assistance to South African citizens in Egypt. GCIS
he Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) has observed with concern the suspension of the constitution and the removal from office of a democratically elected President in Egypt, one year after the presidential election. DIRCO is of the view that all efforts should be made to avoid violent confrontation between contending parties. Instability in Egypt may have far-reaching consequences on the already precarious situation in that country as well as the North African region and Middle East. In line with the African Union Constitutive Act, South Africa is opposed to all forms of unconstitutional changes of government. The
he South African Reserve Bank (SARB) is aware of isolated complaints regarding the thread on new banknotes, it said on Monday 8 July 2013. “The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) is aware of isolated complaints regarding the thread on new banknotes of lower denominations. This is as a result of overcirculation of these notes,” said Hlengani Mathebula, Head Group Strategy and Communications of the bank. This came after weekend reports emerged that the new Mandela notes’ security thread on the notes was believed to be easy to counterfeit. On 6 November 2012 Governor Gill Marcus became the first person to use the country's new bank notes bearing the face of former President Nelson Mandela. In February 2012, President Jacob Zuma announced that the former President would become the first person to appear on the country's banknotes since the dawn of democracy. "On behalf of Government and the people of South Africa, it is my honour and pleasure to announce that the new South African bank notes will bear the image of President Mandela, the President of a free, democratic South Africa," President Zuma said at the time. The SARB urged the public to familiarise itself with the security features of the new notes. It also
called on the public to examine the notes to ensure that they are genuine before accepting them. “South African banknotes are produced to the highest international security standards,” said Mathebula. The notes have denominations of R10, R20, R50, R100 and R200, the same as the previous notes. SAnews.gov.za

he new smart card IDs will officially be launched on former President Nelson Mandela's birthday on 18 July. This, according to Home Affairs Minister Naledi Pandor, is to honour Madiba's legacy. "President Mandela's lifelong struggle for freedom and human rights for South Africans and oppressed people all over the world was, at one level, dedicated to acknowledging the fundamental worth of each and every human being," said Ms Pandor. She also announced that on that day the department will hand over the new smart IDs to President Jacob Zuma, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, former Presidents Thabo Mbeki and FW de Klerk, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Winnie Madikizela Mandela, Sophie de Bruyn, Andrew Mlangeni, Dennis Goldberg, Ahmed Kathrada and a few senior citizens in the 8090 age group who are termed “the Mandela Generation”. Ms Pandor said her department is in the process of preparing 27 regional offices around the country to roll out the new IDs. She added that Home Affairs is trying to ensure that businesses, banks, the insurance industry and other partners have the necessary equipment to verify smart card IDs. “In terms of delivery to the broader public, we will in due course announce plans to roll out to the general public, focusing on young South Africans as first-time applicants for identity documents, as well as senior citizens,” she said. Ms Pandor explained that in order to avoid a barrage of applications, applicants will be invited in stages, according to their dates of birth. “We must stress that it will take between six and eight years before all South Africans have Smart ID Cards. We appeal to everyone to be patient and to allow us to phase in this change efficiently,” she said, adding that her department will work hard to expand the number of offices to process applications for the smart card ID. With regard to the forthcoming elections in 2014 she confirmed that South Africans still in possession of the green bar-coded IDs will be able to use it to vote. The new IDs will be processed in Pretoria and thereafter sent out to applicants. The process is said to take between five and ten days. SAnews.gov.za

ontract workers of Basil Read and Concor at Beeshoek mine near Postmasburg held a peaceful demonstration at the gates of the South plant on Thursday 04 July 2013 to protest against unfair labour practices and poor salaries. They complained about certain allowances including over-time not being paid to them. According to the protesters, numerous meetings held between the workers and the contractor companies before ended with empty promises and agreements not being met by the contractor companies. Most of the contract workers come from other provinces, including neighbouring countries. The protesters demanded the immediate dismissal of BDM as labour broker as well as that the
monthly deductions paid to the labour broker be added to their salaries. The protesters also demanded full representation in the management of both Basil Read and Concor, claiming that this would enhance transparency in the work place. According to some of the protesters, they were threatened with dismissal when they complained about their working conditions. They requested the intervention of the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) and wanted them to take the matter to the CCMA. This demonstration yet again placed focus on the tense atmosphere in the mining sector across South Africa and the minority in management positions infringing on the labour rights of the majority. It is rumoured in Postmas-
burg that only white contractor companies get contracts on the mine with the excuse that locals do not have the skills and qualifications to be employed. Local black-owned companies must then subcontract under the contractor companies in the local mines. Murray & Roberts (which had merged with Concor) and Basil Read were recently fined by the Competition Commission in connection with tender fraud. This demonstration by the contract workers yet again proved that imported labourers from other provinces are employed over and above the growing unemployed in Postmasburg. The Kathu Gazette contacted BDM for comment but no response was received.

oncor Basil Read Joint Venture (CBRJV) responded to the strike action by their workers and confirmed that the management of Concor Basil Read Joint Venture (CBRJV) had on Wednesday 03 July 2013 been handed the demands of the employees who had embarked on an unprotected strike. Project Manager of CBRJV Theo Silver said that following required processes, employees were encouraged to return to work and encouraged to resume
their normal duties in order for negotiations to commence. However at the time of going to press, negotiations with employees had been unsuccessful. He pointed out that the industrial action was unlawful, unprotected and in breach of the employees' contracts of employment. He confirmed that all the employee contracts at the Beeshoek project were in fact transferred from the labour broking company BDM and were renewed with CBRJV in December 2012. Mr Silver
insisted that CBRJV is committed to resolving their labour issues swiftly and to return operations to normal as soon as possible. He said CBRJV acknowledges the importance of their employees and their contribution to the successful completion of the Beeshoek project for the benefit of all stakeholders. Concor Opencast Mining, a division of Murray & Roberts Construction, in a 50-50 joint venture (JV) with Basil Read Mining, last year embarked on a contract to extend the perimeter of an existing pit at Assmang's Beeshoek iron ore mine.

he controversial Red Ants, a division of the South African Police Service who are known for their tough tactics in evicting people from municipal and private properties, on Monday 08 July 2013 evicted people and their possessions from Kumba Iron Ore's houses in Kathu, Sesheng and Dingleton. According to Kumba Iron Ore spokesperson Gert Schoeman, the houses had been occupied by workers dismissed last year following the unlawful and unprotected strike action at Sishen mine last year. Mr Schoeman said the workers occupying the houses had been notified soon after their dismissal in November 2012 to vacate the company's accommodation and several times since as part of the legal process. Kumba finally obtained final eviction orders in terms of which the occupants had to vacate the houses by 05 May 2013. An additional two months' grace was eventually granted, but this came to an abrupt end on Monday 08 July 2013 when approximately 60 Red Ants evicted people from two houses in Sesheng, four houses in Kathu and one in Dingleton. Mr Schoeman confirmed that more evictions are likely, should the remaining dismissed workers not vacate their company accommodation voluntarily. Kumba is waiting for the legal process to run its course and the deadlines set in the individual court orders to pass. He pointed out that not all of the dismissed workers had been staying in company accommodation, so it would be wrong to say that Kumba evicted all 120 dismissed workers. Some of the dismissed workers did, in fact, move out voluntarily since November last year.

uesday 02 July 2013 witnessed a workshop hosted by Khulisa Social Solutions in Kuruman. Held at Ga-Segonyana banquet hall, the two day workshop focused on engaging participants from various social organisations and businesses on social issues and methods with which to address such issues. The workshop was facilitated by Dr Barbara Holtman, who has experience working with fragile and vulnerable communities. She engaged participants on social factors that have been identified, through extensive research, that could lead to a child becoming a deviant, for example. She also informed the participants about efforts that could be made that could prevent a child from crossing the thin line between potential social deviant and criminal. She cited the necessity of people such as social workers that could help communities combat many social issues facing them. The workshop made use of the Social

They were introduced to Petro Swanepoel and her team, who received them eagerly to pass on knowledge of the secretarial sectors within the Administration Department. On Friday 28 June 2013, they were given the opportunity to present what they had learned and experienced during their time at Secretarial Services. Though the scholars are still very young (14 years), they are being groomed in proper presentation skills while at the mine in order to prepare them for the project work they will be doing and presenting in future visits to the mine. Finsch mine also had the opportunity to assist another local learner, Kiara Drude, in obtaining clarity on what she wants to study after she completes high school and what subjects to choose in order to make her dreams come true. Kiara visited the medical centre for two days and spent time with Dr Sandy Sutherland and her team. She was exposed to all the roles and responsibilities of the various sectors within the medical department, which gave her the confirmation that Medical Law is what she would

elements that must be in place for restorative justice to function effectively. The workshop uses the STS methodology to match outcomes to stakeholders, providing highly visual and easy to use guidelines for restorative justice to play a key role in reducing crime and violence in our communities. When asked about the objectives and outcomes of the workshop, organiser Lieze Coetzee said that “based on the elements identified during the workshop, Khulisa will be formulating a strategy and partnerships for the implementation of the HEARD programme. The objective of the HEARD programme is to assist communities to be heard, to be empowered, to heal, to take action, to restore justice and relationships and develop to full potential.” Further information will be communicated. The strategy and projects will be announced on 17 July 2013.
nglo Zimele has empowered Ivy Molema to own a restaurant called Africa's Pride Restaurant, which is situated in Kuruman. Ivy is also the owner of a guest house in Mothibistad. She says that she was introduced to Sishen's Small Business Hub by her daughter in 2012. “My daughter suggested that I approach the Small Business Hub to help me purchase a restaurant that was struggling,” she said. Ivy says that after seeing the opportunity and the potential that the business had, she wasted no time in applying for a business loan from Anglo Zimele in 2013. She named the restaurant Africa's Pride Restaurant because of its unique African menu. Some of the dishes included on the menu are dumplings, samp, porridge, diretlo (tripe), and beef stew. “I want to thank Anglo Zimele for empowering me, and I want people to be aware that when they visit Africa's Pride Restaurant they are going to be served a great meal in a relaxed

www.kathugazette.co.za www.kathugazette.co.za Let Us All Unite for Madiba
s South Africans hold the Father of the Nation, Nelson Mandela, in our thoughts and prayers during his stay in hospital, we are reminded of his lifelong commitment to create the great nation we are today. Madiba has made an indelible mark on our society, having overseen our transition from apartheid to a society that is built on the pillars of democracy, freedom and human rights for all. Every July we have the opportunity to reaffirm Madiba's ideals, including his unwavering commitment to justice, equality and a non-racial South Africa. During Mandela Month special emphasis is placed on the former President's
birthday, 18 July. Mandela Day was launched in New York on 18 July 2009. On 10 November that year the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution declaring it “Nelson Mandela International Day”. Locally the day is dedicated to his work and that of his charitable organisations. The government encourages South Africans to give 67 minutes of their time to help change their communities and the country for the better. The theme for Mandela Month this year is “Take Action, Inspire Change. Make Every Day a Mandela Day”, with a focus on food security, shelter and literacy. It is simple acts of kindness such as painting a
classroom, visiting an old age home, helping to clean a park or even repairing water leaks that make the day special. South Africans, too, have a responsibility to promote freedom and defend our democracy in honour of Madiba's lifelong commitment to these ideals. Let us all heed the call to action and make our icon proud as we make this year's Mandela Day the most memorable one ever. Let us continue to keep the father of our nation in our thoughts and prayers. As Madiba has united us as a nation, we must pray and work together to tackle all challenges facing the country. GCIS Communication
Community News Reporter riday 05 July 2013 marked 28 days since South Africa's most celebrated leader, freedom's patron and our first democratically elected President went into hospital for health compli-cations. It was also the 22nd anniver-sary of the day Mr Mandela was elec-ted President of the African National Congress. On this day, the people of John Taolo Gaetsewe came toge-ther to hold a praise and worship service for Madiba, his family and unity in South Africa. Braving the rain and its accompanying cold, the people of Kuruman and its surround - ing areas descended upon the town to join in prayer and songs of praise for an icon. John Taolo Gaetsewe District Municipality Executive May - or Sofia Mosikatsi welcomed the Members in attendance at the prayer service for Mr Nelson attendants to service. She hailed Madiba as Mandela held in Kuruman. an “icon of the nation of South Africa” and implored them to remember his service to them and the country. She reminded them that this was not a sad occasion, as it was a praise and worship, urging the people to discard of sombre moods and instead engage in raising their spirits. Pastors delivered prayers for Madiba, wishing him a full recovery as well as good health. Prayer was also held for Madiba's family, which has been going through a period of turmoil recently. Lastly, unity in South Africa was also sought. Madi-ba's teachings were meditated and prayed upon, so that his people would not forget his teachings in these tough times.
“I have walked that long road to freedom. I have tried not to falter; I have made missteps along the way. But I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom come responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.” Nelson Mandela
ormer President Nelson Mandela has spent the past few weeks in a Pretoria hospital with a recurring lung infection. The ZF Mcgawu (formerly Siyanda) District Municipality and the //Khara Hais local municipality hosted a prayer service on Friday 04 July 2013 for the elderly and sickly statesman, following calls by President Zuma for South Africans to pray for Mr Mandela. The prayer service was attended by residents from across the district and various church denominations at the Tol Speelman community hall in Progress, Upington. The residents prayed for the speedy recovery of Madiba. Speaker

They hit the camps in the early morning hours and 61 illegal immigrants were arrested. The immigrants
were transported to Kuruman and on Tuesday 9 July 2013 they were taken to Pretoria from where they will be deported back to their countries of origin. Contracting companies are warned not to employ illegal immigrants and to ensure at all times that the people they employ have authentic and prescribed documentation.
Theft Out of Motor Vehicle
he Kathu police are investigating a case of theft out of motor vehicle that occurred in the parking area of the Kathu Village Mall at around 13:05 on Thursday 4 July 2013. The complainant allegedly withdrew some money and put it behind the seat of her Toyota bakkie. At the Kathu Village Mall she allegedly parked and locked the vehicle and went inside. When she returned she found that the canopy was opened and the clip of the back window was broken and the money (R11200) was taken from behind the seat.
The case is still under investigation and anyone with information can contact the investigation officer, Constable Patience Morubisi at 053 723 9125. The Kathu police once again would like to make a call on the community to NOT leave any valuables and money in their vehicles. Whenever you withdraw big amounts of money, DO NOT leave it in your vehicle. We are experiencing an increase in theft out of motor vehicle cases and therefore need the cooperation of the community to curb these crimes.

TV stand and two flat screen TV's in their possession. The two suspects were unable to give a reasonable explanation of where they obtained the items, and were arrested for possession of possible stolen property.
Dwelmhandelaars Kry die Wind van Voor
edurende Junie 2013 tydens algemene patrollie het Konstabels Garry Bezuidenhout en Derick Steenkamp een aand reageer op 'n radioberig van moontlike dwelms by 'n woning in Khambulestraat in Paballelo. By aankoms by die woning is 'n man agter in die perseel gevind met 'n 50 kg veekos sak met 35 verpakte sakkies dagga gevind. Die dagga is gekonfiskeer en die verdagte gearresteer. Die dagga het in totaal 9,30 kg geweeg en het 'n straatwaarde van ongeveer R46 500 gehad. Konstabel Kagiso Methle het net 'n paar dae daarna op inligting reageer van moontlik dwelms te Araliastraat in Paballelo. Met aankoms by die woning is beslag gelê op 10 strooitjies (0,050 gram) tik en kontant ten bedrae van R1579. Die waarde van die tik beloop in die omgewing van R1000. 'n Verdagte is gearresteer en is steeds in aanhouding. Konstabel Methle het ook op nog ander inligting reageer te
Skoolstraat, Paballelo waar daar na bewering dagga gestoor was. Hy was bygestaan deur Konstabel George Steenkamp en Sersant Linton Beerwinkel van Paballelo Misdaadvoorkomingseenheid. Tydens deursoeking van die perseel is daar beslag gelê op 36,5 kg dagga met 'n straatwaarde van ongeveer R182 500. 'n Vrou is in verband met die voorval gearresteer en het reeds in die hof verskyn. In nog 'n voorval het Sersant Linton Beerwinkel en Konstabels Kagiso Methle en George Steenkamp reageer op inligting dat daar by 'n sekere woning naby die SAPD-perseel met dwelms handelgedryf word. By aankoms by die woning het die SAPD beslag gelê op 140 mandraxtablette en kontant ten bedrae van R870 wat gebruik was in die verkoop van dwelms. Drie verdagtes is gearresteer en het reeds voor die hof verskyn. Die waarde van die Mandrax tablette beloop ongeveer R1 400.
Gemeenskap Keelvol vir Dwelmsmouse
ie gemeenskap van Paballelo is nou keelvol vir dwelms in die woonbuurt en het besluit om President Jacob Zuma se versoek ter harte te neem. Dwelms is nie net besig om in Paballelo die jeug van môre te vernietig nie, maar oor die hele land. In samewerking met ander rolspelers het hulle 'n optog van stapel gestuur waartydens hul deur die strate geloop het met plakkate en op verskeie plekke gestop en die boodskap hard en duidelik gelos het dat hul weet wie die dwelmhandelaars is en waar word verkoop. Hulle het ook 'n petisie vir daadwerklike optrede deur die SAPD en ander rolspelers aan die Stasiebevelvoerder, Luitenent-Kolonel Ronell Visagie oorhandig.
Jeug baat by Gemeenskapsprojekte
edurende Junie 2013 is verskeie aktiwiteite aangebied vir kinders en jeug deur die SAPD, maar ook in samewerking met ander departemente. Daar was aan die begin van die maand sommer nog tydens die skoolvakansie al begin om kinders besig te hou. Konstabel Lynn Steenkamp het kinders in die SAPD lesinglokaal besig gehou deur video's aan hul te wys. Adjudant-Offisier Marina Brewis en 'n lid van die jeug, Victor, het die kinders bederf met koeldrank, skyfies en koekies. Hulle is bygestaan deur Konstabel Zetna Ntoi en Mervin Horing (veiligheidsvrywilliger). 'n Totaal van 55 kinders
is betrek by hierdie projek. Alhoewel die SAPD graag meer kinders sou wou bereik, was akkommodasie die probleem. Adjudant-Offisier Brewis is daarna deur die Holy Christian Zion Church in SA genooi om met hul jeug en volwassenes tydens een van hul konvensies te praat oor dwelms en vrouemishandeling. Mense vanuit al nege provinsies het in Paballelo bymekaargekom in geloof en lofprysing, waartydens 'n video oor die verskillende vorms van dwelms aan hul getoon is. Ongeveer 100 kinders en 150 volwassenes is verryk en opgevoed in die gevare van dwelms. Adjudant-Offisier Brewis is ook deur die Departement van Maatskaplike Ontwikkeling
genooi om met kinders in pleegsorg te praat oor veiligheid en die gevare van dwelms. Sy is bygestaan deur Adjudant-Offisier Corriana Kruger en twee veiligheidsvrywilligers, Mervin Horing en Camon Joodt. Voorbeelde van dwelms is aan hul gewys en die gevare daarvan is aan hul verduidelik. Daarna is hul vermaak met vyf kort opvoedkundige video's rondom die gevare van dwelms, om alleen op straat te loop en speel, asook om nie vreemdelinge te vertrou nie. Ongeveer 45 kinders is bereik tydens die inligtingsessie. Alhoewel dit oorspronklik net 10 kinders sou wees, het hul net eenvoudig bly aankom.

Government Calls for Swift Justice in Rape Cases
overnment has called on law enforcement authorities to leave no stone unturned in bringing to book those who rape and abuse children. Outraged and concerned at the report of the rape of an 11 year-old girl in Bramfischerville who was allegedly throttled, stabbed and raped, government has demanded that justice be served not only in this case, but in others that include sexual violence. Acting Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) CEO Phumla Williams said government has put in place systems such as the Constitution, supporting legislation, policies and programmes aimed at fighting crime in the country. However, Mrs Williams warned that without communities actively working with government to combat the scourge of violence that threatens to destroy communities, the fight against crimes directed at women and children will not be won. “Communities, NGOs, the business sector, faith-based organisations and traditional leaders need to join hands and work together to defend and protect the rights of all South Africans and in particular, women and children. We need to jointly take responsibility and action to ensure that we bring back the values of respect for human dignity, which is one of the bases of our democracy. As the country is uniting and praying for Madiba, let us also spare a thought and pray for a safer South Africa,” she said. SAnews.gov.za
