Most parents are quick to come to the defence of their children even when they are in the wrong.
It takes a really honest parent to blow the whistle on his own crooked child.
Tired of his daughter's involvement in a spate of criminal acts, a 59-year-old unemployed man from Soshanguve, near Pretoria, has made an unusual and impassioned plea to the police to arrest her.
Obviously he sang to the cops to clear himself and other family members of being seen as an ally of this bad hat.
We hope other parents will follow his example and stop harbouring criminals in their midst.
