Johannesburg - The Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) expressed outrage on Friday at the killing and raping of children in Diepsloot and elsewhere in the country.
“It is with great sadness that we experience yet another rape and murder of children,” the organisation said in a statement.
“It should be noted that this happens at the time when the CGE has taken measures to ensure that there is public awareness... of gender-based violence in our society.”
It welcomed the arrests in Diepsloot.
“(We) applaud the police for moving swiftly in arresting the alleged perpetrator and believe justice would be served. The CGE will closely monitor the case as part of its internal mandate.”
