MEC for Community Safety in Gauteng Sizakhele Nkosi-Malobane said the recently reported crimes against women and children, committed in the cruellest manner, was an indication that South Africans are an angry nation. She attributed it to poor parental care, manifesting itself in the same children growing to be violent persons. Deputy Minister later took questions from the community at the Change Bible Church just few kilometres from the college. Ms Nonvula Mahlangu said she needed help for her brother, whose parole has been revoked after he was arrested for a further charge and later had the charge withdrawn. She wanted to know why was he not placed on parole after the withdrawal of the charge. Kenny Motsamai, who is on parole, also asked the Deputy Minister about unemployment of parolees and probationers.
Area Coordinator Community Corrections at Boksburg Management Area, Ms Monica Mabena, said they will engage Ms Mahlangu privately to address the situation of her brother. On unemployment of parolees and probationers, she said the department was working with other institutions where parolees and probationers were engaged on different projects, such as, refurbishment of schools and school desks. The Acting Mayor of Ekurhuleni, Lesiba Mpya said the municipality already has already ring-fenced R2 billion for youth related projects, and they will consider ring-fencing a portion of that for ex-offenders.
