CAPE TOWN, The Premier of South Africa's Western Cape Province, Helen Zille is to convene a meeting of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which focus on protection of children soon following a spate of murders of children in the province.
More than 30 children have been murdered in Western Cape since January.
Zille's spokesperson, Michael Mpofu, said here Tuesday that the premier had also proposed an expert study into six killings which might help to determine whether a commission of inquiry into the murders is needed.
We are hoping to get some insight from the specialist NGOs which have an understanding of these incidents as to what else is there that we can do as the government, and also by the whole of society, to protect children," Mpofu said.
"Most of the incidents have taken place within the confines of the home where the perpetrator was trusted by the family or known to the family."
