Crime Justice



Gauteng security To prevent students from committing crimes, the MEC takes them to a jail visit. See


On Wednesday, an inmate from the Baviaanspoort jail in Tshwane spoke to students from two Tshwane high schools about crime issues. On Wednesday, Gauteng community safety MEC Faith Mazibuko brought a group of students from two Tshwane schools to Baviaanspoort prison to meet young criminals.

Mazibuko was accompanied by Nontsikelelo Sisulu, the head of the Gauteng community safety department, who conducted a discourse session between students from Gatang Secondary School and Dr WF Nkomo High School and juvenile convicts at the prison.

The department thought that the tour of the prison would serve as a deterrent to students who would otherwise become involved in criminal activity. The goal of the workshop, according to Gauteng community safety northern corridor official Frans Sema, was to expose the youth to life in correctional services facilities in order to prevent them from unpredictable and criminal behavior.

We also want to provide opportunities for young inmates to make apologies and build resilience among themselves, Sema said. To raise awareness about criminality, inmates shared their personal experiences with students. The majority of smart young people end up in legal trouble because they believe that by using their intelligence, they can get away with murder, Sisulu added.

Mazibuko urged criminals to take advantage of the center's resources. Take advantage of the resources provided here, such as the school, to study, gain skills, and qualifications that will improve your work opportunities once you leave the correctional facility.

We'd like to encourage young offenders to tell our students here today that there is no good or easy life in prison, Mazibuko said. Once you're in here, you lose all your freedom, including your freedom of movement, because there are restrictions and limits here.

A Gauteng man was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend.

Khopotso Danny Mokholobotho, who admitted to killing his girlfriend in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni, last year, received an effective 20-year sentence on Monday.
