Incidents of Sexual Offences Unsettling – Xingwana

Minister speaks out against the escalating incidents of sexual offenses against children

Minister for Women, Children and People with Disabilities, Lulu Xingwana, says escalating incidents of sexual offences against children and the mentally disturbed demand decisive intervention.

Speaking at a one-day interactive dialogue on sexual violence against children and adolescents in Meadowlands, south-west of Johannesburg, Xingwana stressed the need for a platform for young victims of sexual offences.

"The voices of children and adolescents are not heard often enough; neither are they seriously considered when designing policies and programmatic interventions," she explains.
