FOLLOWING the increase of recent murders and attacks, and of incidents that have taken place in farming and rural areas in KZN and across South Africa, CEO of the KZN Agricultural Union, Kwanalu, Sandy La Marque, has issued a statement of demand calling for the National Rural Safety Strategy (NRSS) to be implemented as a matter of urgency.

La Marque called upon all stakeholders to prioritise farm and rural incidents which have reached unacceptable levels in recent months.

“We need to be very clear, Kwanalu representing our members across KZN, calls for law and order, and for the safety and security of our farmers and those living in rural areas, to be made a priority right now. The prevention of crime, arrests of criminals and the sentencing of offenders is not the responsibility of farmers,” said La Marque.
