Children’s rights groups want to ban spanking of children and make it illegal.

The Social Development Department is also considering modifying the Children’s Right Act following the Child Justice Alliance at the University of Cape Town asked to forbid corporal punishment.

If the request goes through this would mean that parentswont be able to utilize corporal discipline in their homes.

Sam Waterhouse spokesperson of the Child Justice Alliance says they are aware of the negative reaction they will receive from society
