SAPS in Kabega Park held an educational drive last week in an effort of creating awareness on Children’s Rights, drugs, domestic violence and bullying.

The drive, in partnership with the Department for Safety and Liaison and the Community Police Forum, visited Kuyga Primary School to address its learners.

According to police spokesperson, Colonel Priscilla Naidu, the Mounted Unit with about 60 children and teachers led a procession through the streets of Kuyga handing out pamphlets.

“A door to door campaign was also conducted and the community was urged not to involve themselves in mob justice and instead to report unlawful deeds and criminals to the police,” Naidu said.

PE FCS unit and the Mounted unit also formed part of this educational drive. A rehabilitated drug addict also gave a moving testimony on how he turned his life around and is now a successful person.

Naidu added, “The children were treated to food hampers and beverages, which was generously sponsored by local businesses in the Kabega Park area. The youth and our children remain one of our greatest assets as the change-makers and innovators of our country therefore their safety and well-being is of utmost importance.”
