The Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development, Mr John Jeffery, will on Friday, 13 May 2022, host a justice service delivery Imbizo at Delft, Cape Town.
The Constitution pledges a better life, equality and freedom for all our people, however, this will have little meaning if women and children are not safe in their homes, in their schools and in their communities. SAPS’ 3rd Quarter Crime Stats indicate that Delft is one of the areas with the highest number of sexual offences cases in the country. Therefore it is imperative that the community is informed of justice services and support services available to survivors of sexual offences and GBV.
The Imbizo is part of the Department’s recently launched Year of the Community programme and will focus exclusively on the on-going fight against Gender Based Violence and Femicide.
The Imbizo will be hosted by the Department, in partnership with other important justice stakeholders such as the National Prosecuting Authority, the Office of the Chief Justice and Legal Aid SA. The community engagement seeks to provide residents of Delft with the opportunity to interface with the Ministry, the Department and other justice stakeholders.
Members of the media are invited to attend the event that will take place as follows;
Date: 13 May 2022
Venue: Delft Civic Center, Voorburg Rd, Delft, Cape Town
Time: Gates open 08h00. Exhibitions 09h00. Formal imbizo 10h00
