Keep youth on proper path

Susan Shabangu, pictured, the incompetent deputy minister of Safety and Security, and her spokesmen, Noxolo Kwesa and Kenneth Meshoe, lack the appropriate ideas or necessary intelligence to address criminal brutality.

Their utterances are typical of people who think they sit at the right hand of God to judge other human beings, knowing well that there is total security around them that makes them immune to criminal attack.

Guns are in the wrong hands, that is a fact.

Fighting fire with fire or even reinstating the death penalty will never be the solution but an exacerbation of the situation where victims are exposed to the might of criminals.

What we should do is motivate criminals and open all doors leading to opportunities.

Some, if not most of these guys, do not know what filial love is.

I would be grateful if we could introduce initiation programmes in schools that will change the mindset of the youth and keep them from taking the wrong path.
