Farm murder: Where is KZN's Community Safety Bill?
THE brutal murder of an elderly Richmond farmer, his wife and son confirms the lack of proper rural policing in our province and reaffirms the urgent need for the KZN Community Safety Bill to be tabled and adopted.
The DA is deeply disturbed by this latest incident. We offer our sincere condolences to the loved ones of the deceased.
An attack on a farmer and his family is an attack on every member of our province's rural community.
These brutal attacks are proof that there is a severe lack of visible policing within rural areas.
They are proof that there are not enough police stations in outlying areas and that, where they do exist, they are not properly resourced in terms of vehicles and other essentials.
