The debate to launch a Moral Regeneration Movement campaign has been cleared. The department of correctional services will launch the campaign today.
Spokesperson for the department Eddie Johnson told the Cape Argus that the aim of the programme is to facilitate, promote and restore morals in society. He says that the wounds of ‘moral decay experienced over the years’ need to be healed.
The launch will coincide with the department’s Corrections Week Campaign. Western Cape correctional officers and offenders will be taking part in the launch.
Pollsmoor Prison hosted a breakfast to introduce their new area commissioner, Albert Khumbule for Pollsmoors’ management area.
Area co-ordinator for development and care Veliswa Kokong said that Pollsmoor will be running programmes in the Khayelitsha area. She says communities will be able to recognise rehabilitation programmes in the area.
