Gauteng ANC decries child killing

12 September 2013

The entire African National Congress especially those of us in the Public Safety are all devastated by the murder of a four-year-old Katlehong girl who was raped, murdered and found hanged.

Keabetswe Tshabalala`s half-naked body was discovered hanging inside an old building on Monday morning. The child went missing on Sunday. She was last seen by neighbours with a family friend. Comrade Nokuthula Sikakane chairperson of Rural Development and Agriculture Portfolio Committee is currently working close with the family and community in Katlehong and the ANC Parliamentary Constituency Office (PCO).

The 37-year-old man has been arrested. We congratulate the police for their sterling work with the swift arrest of the suspects. We pin our hopes now on the ability of the criminal justice system to deliver justice to the Tshabalaa family.

Chairperson of the Community Safety Potfolio Committee
