Child killers should be heavily sentenced - ANC

2014-08-14 17:45

Johannesburg - Child killers should be handed heavy sentences by the judiciary, the ANC said on Thursday following the murder of a 10-year-old girl in Gugulethu, Cape Town.

"The ANC calls on our courts to impose heavy sentences to anyone found guilty of such killings," spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said in a statement.

"While we welcome the swift action of the SA Police Service... we reiterate our call to all our communities to unite and take a stand against this scourge of violence against the most vulnerable."

The ANC said it was saddened by the killing and sent its condolences to the girl's family.

The girl's body was found under a bed in a house in Gugulethu on Tuesday.

She was reported missing a day earlier.

A post mortem was due to be carried out to determine the cause of death.

Three men have been arrested in connection with the murder and were expected to appear in court soon.

    Any killer should be heavily sentenced! Regardless if if that person is young or old!

  • Dionne Du Toit - 2014-08-14 18:10

    The only solution to your problem is - "Bring back the death penalty" If you know that you could face the death penalty, you will most certainly think twice before you will just kill another person.

    What does a heavy sentence help if the victims are left without compensation ??? Labour camps , Farm camps , Nationwide cleaning will be part of repaying to society !! Am I wrong ????

  • lacrimosewolf - 2014-08-14 18:29

    Ag this is such a complex issue which the ANC addresses by telling us what we already know. Why are we breeding so many killers of all brands to begin with? Parents, relatives, neighbours, gangs, robbers, serial, teachers, drivers, politicians. Killing seems to be a solution to every problem. We are a nation that craves death. No law is going to cure what ails us. I wish all these killers would start with themselves

  • AndrĂ© Van Wyk - 2014-08-14 18:29
