An aspiring model from Mfuleni hoping to clinch a national personality title aims to promoting morality among children and also fight crime.

Masithembe Rawe, 22, has made it to the list of topp 10 contenders for Mr Justice SA pageant, whose finals will be held in Jozi in October.

He will be representing the Western Cape province.

The Mr Justice pageant is held in partnership with the no crime culture project in the fight against crime in South Africa through moral education.

The competitors have been given a challenge to go to 15 schools of their choice across in their areas to educate learners from high and primary schools and community centres about morality, in the hopes that it is the best way to eradicate crime in societies.

Rawe’s interest in the competition was drawn after a Facebook entry earlier in the year.

“I saw a need of entering for it, because I am also a victim of burglary which took place in January. The perpetrator is a primary school boy who lives not far from home.

So that touched me. I believe children do need to be guided. I always wanted to make a difference in someone’s life.

I understand the responsibility that I would be facing should I win,” Rawe said.

Rawe was selected after he impressed the judges with his assignment which contestants were required to write in February.

The finalists are also required to complete assignments which they must post on Facebook every week.

Rawe, an undergraduate Electrical Engineering student at Northlink College, is currently doing his internship at Groote Schuur Hospital.

Mr Justice SA winner will also be announced in October.

Rawe has visited five schools in the Western Cape so far which include Wesbank Primary School, Mfuleni Primary School, Rainbow Primary School, Palamente Street Primary school and the New Life Malibu Musical College.

He appealed to people to like his Facebook page, Masithembe Rawe Semi-finalist Mr Justice SA 2016.06.07
