The Democratic Alliance in North West would like to thank the South African Police Services in Potchefstroom for finding the alleged murderer of 16 year old Tsholofelo Simango. The accused already appeared in court in connection with this crime on Monday.
The DA sympathizes with the friends and family of Miss Simango, especially in the time that lies ahead.
We would however like to remind the government that every citizen has the right to a safe environment as it is stated in the constitution of South Africa. We urgently call on the SAPS in North West to give attention to the incurrence of violent crimes in the Province since the beginning of this year. Let 2012 be the year in which lives are saved and protected, rather than a year remembered for a high rate in violent crime in urban, as well as rural communities.
