The Democratic Alliance has stated that the
Minister of Social Development Bathabile Dlamini is failing to protect the
children in the country.
DA MP of Social Development Mike Waters
said he will be submitting questions to the minister to ascertain whether her
department has received the report on the Child Protection Register done by the
South African Human Rights Commission.
Waters said they have ignored our plea and
the report itself which contains some very important recommendations which we
believe the department should be implementing to improve the register and the
effectiveness of the register.
“Currently we only have 480 names on the
register which means that we adding one name every few days to the register and
given the fact that we have tens of thousands of child rapes every year, this
is a disgrace.” Waters added.
