THE Kestell South African Police Service (SAPS), the Youth Desk and the Community Policing Forum held a beauty pageant at the Kestell Town Hall with the aim of keeping young minds away from crime and recruiting them into more responsible crime awareness activities.

The pageant that was attended by young people from Kestell and Tlholong, saw Dingaan Mazibuko crowned as king and Badi Ntombizodwa as queen.

According to Sgt Mmako Mophiring, the main purpose of the pageant was to find young individuals who are willing to take an active role in fighting crime.

The aim is to place these individuals in posts at the Youth Desk and to involve them in crime-fighting activities.

The desk will be involved in a number of activities which will lure the youth away from anti-social groups that may lead them to gangsterism.

Activities will be incorporated into a yearly plan which mostly falls into place during school holidays. It is usually during this period that young people fall victim to drug and alcohol abuse, when there are no activities to keep them busy
