Western Cape MEC of Social
Development Albert Fritz has condemned the recent attack of two social workers
The two social workers were
conducting a home visit in the area when protesters approached their car and
started throwing stones at them.
MEC Fritz said it is
unacceptable that that social workers come under attack from the very community
they are meant to serve.
Fritz said we really want to
bring the services of the department of social development to where people need
the services the most. Now if our social workers are going to be attacked in
those areas we will seriously consider withdrawing our services from those vulnerable
“We also want to call on
community members to go and report these people who are attacking service
delivery agents to the police so that they can be punished and sent to jail”
