MEDIA STATEMENT BY THE
INKATHA FREEDOM PARTY


Innocence Destroyed

1 March 2013      

 

 The Inkatha Freedom Party in KwaZulu-Natal is appalled at the senseless and brutal murder of an eight year old grade three learner at Umlazi, South of Durban.

 

It is alleged that the eight year old went missing on Friday last week (22 February 2013) and after an extensive search her body was found.

 

“When will these brutal attacks on the innocent and vulnerable stop?

The Police appear to be ineffective and unable to protect law abiding citizens. As a civilised society we cannot allow such barbaric acts against innocent women and children to continue,” said Honourable Les Govender, Shadow MEC for Social Development.

 

The IFP expresses sincere condolences to the family of the deceased child and the community of Umlazi. The IFP is also calling on government to come up with effective measures to put an end of such inhuman acts.

 

“Slogans do not stop crime but harsh and swift punishment will do the deed,” said Honourable Govender.
