Guard our future

Children are the future of any country. They must be protected, taught and nurtured if they are to enjoy better lives.

Children are the future of any country. They must be protected, taught and nurtured if they are to enjoy better lives.

But this ideal would seem a pipe dream when children continue to live under the shroud of brutes who target them for rape and murder.

A year after the gruesome rapes and killings of Lindiwe and Nolisiwe Mbhele, Soweto is experiencing a spate of similar horrors.

Zandile Manganyi, 12, was found this week with her throat slit.

Last month, 17-year-old Madou Mafubedu died in similar circumstances in Klipspruit.

These killings must stop and the killers must be brought to book. Or else our future is doomed too.
