Petitioning Parliament of the Republic of South Africa

#JusticeForSadia #JusticeForKelly #JusticeForAll #CitizensAgainstCrime

Today, 28 May 2018, A 9-Year-old girl, Sadia Sukhraj was shot & killed during a hijacking that took place in Shallcross, Durban, KZN, South Africa. This tragedy occurs on National Child Protection Week. Three days later, on the 31st of May 2018, 42-Year-Old Kelly Chetty was shot & killed in front of his two children during a botched Hijacking in Avoca, KZN. South Africa has one of the highest crime rates in the world with an average of 52 people murdered every single day, almost 20 000 people per annum. South Africa has a murder rate of 34 per 100 000 people almost 5 times the global average of 6.2 per 100 000 people. KwaZulu-Natal is ranked amongst the highest province with a murder rate of 36.6%. South African's have to live in fear on a daily basis due to hijackings, armed robberies, murder, rape & other violent crimes. Innocent lives are lost on a daily basis with little justice! We as South African citizens are tired of laying loved ones to rest due to criminal activity, we are tired of those who do not think twice when taking the life of another & often get away with it! We demand justice for the victims of rape, the victims of farm murders, we demand justice for all those who lost their lives due to the barbaric acts of brazen heartless criminals who have no fear for consequence due to our Failing Justice System.  We are imploring all South African's to sign this petition and force the South African Parliament which serves as our Legislature to look into Section 51 of South Africa's Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1997. We are calling for stricter sentences for convicted Murderers, Rapists & Perpatrators of Violent Crimes.  Secondly, we are calling for Parliament to investigate why the South African Police Services (SAPS) continues to fail in its duty to protect the citizens of our country. We respect police officers who risk their lives daily for our protection however more needs to be done! Crime prevention strategies needs be implemented. If lack of resources is the issue than Parliament must allocate more resources to our Security & Defence Services. We urgently need to find out what is limiting SAPS ability to function on the scale that is required. The right to protection is enshrined in our Bill of Rights and we continue to have these rights violated. The Outcomes of this Campaign:- We will be writing to the Minister of Police, Bheki Cele & the Chief Whips of the ANC, DA, EFF & IFP. - We will be working with various stakeholders who seek to come up with solutions regarding crime prevention strategies for our communities. - We are calling for an urgent Parliamentary enquiry into the South African Police Services (SAPS)  Please sign & share with all friends & family as a matter of urgency!!!! We will not let another seed fall to the ground without Justice Being Served. #JusticeForSadia #JusticeForAll #CitizensAgainstCrime  Statistical References: https://africacheck.org/factsheets/south-africas-crime-statistics-201617/https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_intentional_homicide_ratehttps://m.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/mostly-children-murdered-in-sa-report-20170608 PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ANY FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION WHEN CHANGE.ORG PROMPTS YOU TO DO SO.
