May 31, 2017 6:27 am

President Jacob Zuma has urged the community of Elsies River to work with the law enforcement agencies and government departments to defeat the scourge of crime.

The President returned to the area today, 30 May 2017, on the Fight against Crime Imbizo in Elsies River in Cape Town.

The Imbizo came a few weeks after the President visited the Pieters family in their home in the area, following the tragic killing of their three-year old Courtney Pieters, who was found dead and buried in a shallow grave.

President Zuma undertook to return to Elsies River to look into the many challenges of crime and murder especially of children and how law enforcement authorities would improve their services to the community.

The President said that his visit also formed part of government’s activities for the National Child Protection Week campaign that is observed annually to raise awareness for the rights of children and mobilise all sectors of society to care for and protect children.

The campaign was launched on 28 May 2017 in Langa, Cape Town, Western Cape and will close on 4 June 2017, in the OR Tambo District in Eastern Cape under the theme: “Let us all protect children to move South Africa forward”.
