Community News

The Seventh Day Adventist Church handed over a petition to the SAPS Mothibistad in solidarity with many other organisations and institutions throughout the country that have expressed their dismay about abuse and violence perpetrated against women and children. 
The march, attended by around 300 participants including men, started at 11:00 from Mahikaneng Primary School at Seven Miles, then meandered through Seodin village and Magojaneng village up to Mothibistad police station.
The petition was received by Captain Zukisile Biko on behalf of the Station Commander.
Men were very vocal about the nasty situation currently happening in the country. They said that if it is due to the moral decay of men, then men must take the initiative to stop it.
The church believes that actions and prayers combined can make a real difference to society. If a man has become a predator to a woman and child, who then should defend humankind ? 
The church leadership, supported by the Motorcycle Association, organised the peaceful march to mark its profound con-demnation of the ignominious act by some of the masculine perpetrators.
The church Pastor Thamsanqa Danxa said that there is a chance to transform and reform communities.
