LEBOENG – Semoriri Secondary School pupils were ecstatic when Burgersfort cluster police donated hygienic products to them. The donation was from the cluster’s women’s network team, and was handed over last Wednesday. The handover occurred after the police addressed pupils as part of their crime-awareness campaign.
It was led by the deputy cluster commander, Brig Mokgaetji Malahlela, and station commander of Leboeng SAPS, Capt Solomon Moholoane.
Addressing the pupils, Malahlela indicated that they should refrain from bringing armaments to schools. “Knives and cellphones are not allowed at schools. You need to respect one another and also the teachers.”
After the address, Malahlela supplied Semoriri with more than 186 packets of hygienic products. They were donated by all seven clusters in Tubatse.
After the campaign at the school, the deputy cluster commander and the team visited Leboeng VEP where they interacted with the 11 victims ranging from age 03 to 67 from Maoko family and Sehlangu family all from Kgautswane village in the Leboeng policing area.
These victims are accommodated at the centre since May 2017 after they were evicted by the community violently, threatening to kill them. Capt Mamadisha from cluster EHW prayed for the families to be strong during these difficult times while they are still accommodated at the centre.
