The Democratic Alliance said its requests to amendment the Children’s Act of 2006 to include the provision that the names of people convicted of attempted rape be added to the National Child Protection Register. 

DA MP of Social Development Mike Waters said the request has been ignored. 

Waters has said children must be protected from those who are convicted of rape and attempted rape.

“Together with the Child Protection Register, the Children’s Act has the potential to prevent the abuse, neglect and endangerment of thousands of children, but needs better legislation and implementation” Waters added.
