Criminals run amok

Sipho Henisi, Philippi East

I stay in Philippi East and I feel our area needs an urgent intervention of the police services. People are dying like flies daily here.

Innocent people are brutally murdered by young boys for their valuables.

We must be escorted everywhere we go within the ward, I am afraid, as a teacher who is working in the community, of how many children we have lost during the holiday. The number of drop-outs will increase.

I’m even more afraid that, as leaders, we are victimised by these criminal children.

They silence us by torturing our families.
