The department of social development hosts a restorative justice intervention in the northern cape ,de aar

The Department of Social Development is planning a restorative justice intervention between parents and children who are in gangs. According to a statement released by the department of social development the Pixley Ka Seme and ZF Mgcawu district municipalities were identified as gangsterism hotspots in the Northern Cape. These two districts were identified to have high prevalence of gangsterism after collaborative work between the department of social development and other stakeholders that reported high incidents of gangs amongst learners at the Sunrise township in De Aar. They further added that evidence showed a high number of referrals to the Emthanjeni Department of Social Development service point as children are found to be in groups of gangs with the intention to commit violence while they are in school and in the care of their parents. The department further added that the restorative justice intervention will thus be held tomorrow at the De aar community hall from 08:00 in the morning.
