STRAND – A Strand ward councillor has urged parents to be more vigilant of their children’s whereabouts.
This comes in the wake of another child murder over the weekend.
Five-year-old Minentle Lekatha‘s body was found in Nomzamo on Sunday.
Lekatha was last seen playing outside her home before she disappeared on Saturday.
Community members launched a search for the young girl and her body was found under a bridge in Nomzamo yesterday.
Strand ward councillor John Middleton says communities need to unite against the scourge of violence against children.
“Although you can’t have your eyes everywhere, certainly if a child goes out of your sight or out of your home, you must know where they’re going to.”
An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.
