The call for communities affected by gang violence, drug abuse and crime to band…

The call for communities affected by gang violence, drug abuse and crime to band together has been made during an interfaith religious service in Athlone. The service was preceded by a march led by interfaith leaders and communities against social ills claiming the lives of many people on the Cape Flats. The most recent death is a six-year-old girl who was shot and killed in Lavender Hill. She was hit in the head by a stray bullet on Saturday afternoon and died in hospital. Anti-Apartheid Cleric, Professor Allan Boesak took part in the service: “Gangsterism is a result of socio-economic political circumstances, educational problems that have not been solved over the past decade. The gangsters must know the people they are attacking, The people they are selling drug to, the women and the girls that they are raping, the children they are preventing from going to school, they are all doing that to their own people.”

  1. Professor or not – the problem that needs tackling head-on here is the crime infesting the Cape Flats and people must not waste their time in “character assassination” and come up with plans to effectively deal with it!!!

  2. The anti Boesak comments from a minority who benefitted from Apartheid. Meeting violence with violence will never solve the problem
