Kidnapping of scholars on the increase

Following a recent increase in kidnapping of children around school premises in the Western Cape, The Department Of Education has instructed all schools in the province to update their safety and access policies.

In the latest incident, a 15 year old learner was abducted and allegedly raped by men driving a white BMW motor vehicle. The victim was on her way to school.

Jessica Shelver, spokesperson for the ministry said that the department is especially concerned about opening and closing times of schools and also learners who walk alone to and from school. Shelver added by saying that learners who are picked up from school should remain inside the school premises until they have identified the person driving the vehicle picking them up.

When making use of public transport, learners should travel in groups and take note of strangers behaving in a suspicious manner. This may assist in later identification of perpetrators. Teachers and parents should also ensure that learners are aware of the possible dangers posed by strangers.
