Reintegration highlighted

The Kroonstad Social Reintegra­tion (SRI) Office held a successful and informative service delivery imbizo on 20 March in Ngwathe, Edenville.

It was attended by over 300 community members.

Vickus van Rooyen of the Kroonstad SRI said the purpose of the imbizo was to keep the community informed of the services provided by the Department of Correctional Services (DCS).

The procedure from when the offender is sentenced until he or she is monitored by the community correctional services, was explained. Challenges were also highlighted.

Van Rooyen said the imbizo was also held to afford the SRI stakeholders the opportunity to explain the processes the community need to follow when dealing with crime and fraud prevention, and other services by government departments.

Julia Makhubo, victim offender dialogue (VOD) facilitator at Kroonstad SRI, explained the purpose of the VOD programme.

She explained the need to intensify the outreach to victims and communities, to profile and to interact with victims, to give offenders a second chance and to form broad partnerships around fighting crime and its preven­tion.

The community was shown an episode of the VOD television programme, YOBE, which is a prison reality show that airs on DStv channel 161.

The offenders of the Bizzah Makhate Centre of Excellence of the DCS participated in the VOD sessions that were broadcasted.

This informative sessions were supported by stakeholders of the Ngwathe Local Municipality, the South African Police Service (SAPS), the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa), the Department of Health, the Department of Traffic, Roads and Transport, non-profitable organisations and faith-based organisations.

The community could ask questions and those with serious cases were also attended to by relevant departments.
