DURBAN city officials said they will take a hard line with young mothers leaving their children behind at the beach, calling it a disturbing trend.

Provincial police spokesperson Captain Thulani Zwane confirmed that police were looking for the mothers. “Once these mothers are identified they will be charged for child neglect in line with the Child Protection Act. However, if they are found to be under age then they will be handed over to the social workers.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
