MEC Says Children Do Not Have Rights

Rights groups have reacted with outrage to the comments by the Eastern Cape MEC for Education, Mandla Makapula, that children do not have any rights.

The MEC has been quoted by the Eastern Cape’s Dispatch Online as saying no children under the age of 21 - who are still dependent on their parents for food and shelter - have any rights.

“For you, rights come later in life when you are independent, finished studying and have your own place to stay and your own car. That is when you can start talking about rights,” he explains.
