BETHLEHEM. Z Crime is a prominent issue in South Africa.

South Africa has a very high rate of murder, assault, rape, and other crimes compared to most other countries. Most emigrants from South Africa state that crime was a big factor in their decision to leave.

The crime prevention unit at the Department of Social Development will host the annual Speak out Against Crime competitions in all districts.

Schools from Mangaung, Thabo Mofutsanyana, Xhariep and Fezile Dabi will take part in semifinals at a district level in preparation for the provincial event.

The Bethlehem event will be hosted on Friday, 30 September.

The venue and time for the event are yet to be confirmed.

Public speaking bring positive changes in children’s lives.

Children who take part in these competitions gain self-confidence and become conversant with addressing large audiences. They also develop the ability to easily assume leadership in a group, develop listening, reading and writing skills and become change agents in their communities.
