Do something about the shootings

Aubrey Robinson, community leader, Cafda

It really hurts me as a community leader and a parent to see these shootings taking place in our so-called poor areas.

It makes me wonder what the fighting is about between our youth who attend school together, play sports together, live in the same areas and even attend the same madrassas and churches.

It makes me wonder what is our security agencies actually doing about all of this. Clearly many parents have lost control of their children and these kids are actually telling their parents what to do.

I feel that the politicians don’t want to get involved in at least trying to do something. Even the sub-council is mum on the gangsters and shootings in the area.

Why must it always be left to the community leaders, activists, church and mosque leaders to try and at least do something?
