Today marks the start of 16 Days of Activism against women and child abuse in South Africa. Spokesperson for the Democratic Alliance said that hardly a day goes by without reports about the rape, abduction or the murder of innocent children.

Mazibuko says “given the extent of this crisis there has never been a greater need for government to invest more resources into specialised units whose specific task it is to combat this huge problem.”

Mazibuko also said that “the DA is committed to seeing the elimination of all of crime and abuse against children in South Africa, and this why the DA will be holding a conference on specialised resources for abused children in Johannesburg today.”

The conference will be hosted by Sandra Botha, DA Parliamentary Leader, and Mike Waters, DA Spokesperson for Health, and will focus on ways in which specialist skills, expertise, and resources can be bind together in order to begin to reverse this terrible trend.
