SAPS members, police station­ staff and units in the Port Shepstone Cluster, participated in a Super Moms Peace March last Wednesday.

The objective was to commemorate May as Mother’s Month and raise awareness on the unacceptable attacks on foreign nationals.

The purpose of the walk was also to commend the local Hospice.

The event was planned and co-ordinated under the banner of the Port Shepstone Cluster Women’s Network by the network champion, Lieutenant-Colonel Theresa Pillay, the station­ commander of the Msinsini SAPS.

The day’s programme started with a motivational talk by Pillay who spoke about the important role played by women in the South African Police Service as well as in society­.

She gave the women advice on ways to overcome gender-related challenges and face the world with confidence.

The placard-carrying participants handed out crime-awareness pamphlets and chanted anti-xenophobia and gender-based violence slogans as they marched from Park Rynie beach to the Scottburgh beachfront. Funds raised were donated to Hospice.

Major General Ndlovu, Port Shepstone Cluster Commander, was unable to join her members in the march due to unforeseeable circumstances. She gave approval for the members to go ahead with the peace march and wished them well.
