Legislation on initiation schools urgently needed
15 June 2011
The Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities says national legislation on initiation schools is urgently needed.
Spokesperson Matthew Gopane says provinces such as North West, the Western Cape and Mpumalanga still don't have the relevant legislation n place.
He added that laws are not helping prepare and assist in successful initiations.
Gopane says practises in initiation schools have to comply with the Constitution.
