3 000 children on Gauteng protection list

2012-06-11 23:07

Johannesburg - More than 3 000 children are listed in the Child Protection Register (CPR) for sexual abuse in Gauteng, Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini said on Monday.

"The specified categories of abuse in which the names appear in the CPR are sexual abuse, emotional abuse and deliberate neglect," she said in a written reply to a parliamentary question.

A total of 1 751 sexual abuse victims' names appeared on the CPR register for the Western Cape. In addition, the province had the highest number of children found to be deliberately neglected, at 2 522.

Dlamini said the CPRs of most provinces were compatible, which would enable social workers to access information from other provinces.

The Eastern Cape was the only province using a separate system.

"DSD [the department of social development] is in the process of rebuilding the whole system and in future the provinces will be utilising one CPR system", Dlamini said.

    Breakdown of the family unit is a devastating spiral which rips the core of our society apart. Children are the biggest victims that grow into the biggest monsters.

    Give child abusers the death penalty

    Are they also protecting the rapists and molesters?? They must be listed and be googleable... We want to know who these animals are that live within us...

      Rape is a human trait not an animal trait.

      Agree! Name and shame these monsters! Let them be shown to society so that the whole world can see them!

    Yes agree with Mpotsiseng that the list of all sexual offenders must be made public - always, however, I think he got a little confused. The offenders are in fact other humans and not animals at all.

    Disgusting. The number should be ZERO.

    And our leaders chose 2 concentrate on the bheki qele's

  • snoopy.snoopaloop - 2012-06-12 09:20

    And HOW MANY OF the Sexual Offenders are listed on the Sex Offenders Registry??? Definitely less than 3000 - Carte Blanche actually had a program airing the Governments Niglect towards the Victims. Freaking Disgusting..

      I was just wondering the same thing. Last time I heard about it there was one person on that list and that was only a few months ago.
