Gauteng Police Commissioner Elias Mawela has accepted ActionSA’s offer of a R50 000 reward for anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest of culprits who murdered the two boys in Soweto this past week.
ActionSA hopes the R50 000 reward will help bring justice to the families of Nqobile Zulu and Tshiamo Raban, aged 5 and 6, who were abducted while playing before they were brutally murdered.
Their murder highlights how communities have been left defenceless against rising crime and ActionSA is committed to turning the situation around.
As the former City of Johannesburg Chief of Police and former Mayoral Member for Public Safety, I spoke to Mawela on Tuesday afternoon where he welcomed ActionSA’s offer of a reward and said that it would help contribute to apprehending the suspects behind this senseless crime.
Mawele encouraged members to come forward with information that can lead to the arrest of suspects to be eligible for the R50 000 reward and bring closure to the Zulu and Raban families. As per the request by the families, Mawele also said he will work with me in investigating the boys’ murder.
ActionSA President Herman Mashaba on Sunday wrote to Mawela to offer the R50 000 reward after he visited the affected families in White City in Soweto where he has a close relationship with the community.
As a party committed to the rule of law, ActionSA will not rest until children can play safely play in the streets of our communities without fear for their safety, and that the rule of law is restored to all spheres of our society.
