Prayer session held to stop violence

Divine intervention is needed to help stop gender-based violence against women and children, and to regenerate the morals of the communities.

So says Maj. Gen. Apaphia Modise, commander of the Thabong cluster police.

She is all too aware of the vicious crimes and killings of women and children in her cluster.

Three women were brutally murdered in this precinct between December 2019 and January this year.

This prompted Modise to embark on an awareness campaign in the form of a prayer session with other stakeholders, including fraternal clergy.

The community experienced heartbreaking moments during the festive season when a young woman was found burned to death in Thabong.

At the beginning of this year a pregnant woman was stabbed to death in 2010 Village, Thabong, while a third woman was found killed under a culvert in Bronville during the same period.

“Despite the fact that we have managed to arrest two of the perpetrators in the two Thabong cases, the third case still remains unsolved”, says Capt. Malebo Khosana, Thabong Cluster corporate communication and liaison officer.

A prayer session will be held on 19 February in the open field in Sunrise near the Total filling station.

The assembly point is at 08:00 at the four-way stop (Matsoso), Nokoane Road.

“The community and other stakeholders are invited to attend”, says Khosana.
