Kids at Umzomhle Educare Centre received surprise visitors with glee on Monday, Mandela Day, in Khayelitsha.

“It’s a gesture from Lingelethu Police station to the community on Mandela Day. Tata loved children and education, therefore we decided to do this in our 67 Minutes,” said Constable Xoliswa Nyalambisa from Lingethu Police station.

They spent 67 minutes with the children at the centre, which is in TR Section.

Onele Nana,5, one of the children, was full of exhilaration on the day of the visit.

Iminathi Mpokwane, also 5, said they felt the warmth of the police visit and were elated by the food and the goodies.

“This is good news...we must tell our families of the love that was shown by the police today. our parents,big brothers and sisters must also show love to the policemen and women in our township.

Songezo Sindi, from the educare centre shared the sane sentiments as the tots.

“It is a great honour that we received goodies from the police, also showing that they cares about us and our children. Police also have families and children of their own, which means they are sisters, brothers, mothers and uncles too,” he said.

The police are here to protect everybody and we also we need to show them love. We should feel safe in the presence and street corners should not be places where thugs or skollies use as a place to stalk unsuspecting citizens and victims on their way to work or children to the shops.
