DA:Initiates’ safety should take priority over all else

Democratic Alliance said the safety of initiates must be top priority. 

The DA has called on Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional
Affairs Richard Baloyi to set up an Independent Commission of Inquiry to investigate what really went wrong during the initiation process. 

DA research and communications officer Michael Mpofu said the deaths were due to reckless health and safety practices, and that some individuals in communities have taken advantage of traditional systems by taking up initiation schools without proper training and skills.

“Our message must be clear; the safety of our children must take precedence over all else during these ceremonies” Mpofu added.
