The families of the 19 children that have been reported murdered in the Western Cape this year will be sharing their stories of grief in the National Assembly on Tuesday.
Spokesperson for the family of Courtney Peters and Manenberg Safety Forum chairperson, Roegshanda Pascoe, says the family and community welcome the opportunity to speak and voice their concerns.
It's about time that people are given the voice to speak about what they are going through and what is affecting them on the ground.— Roegshanda Pascoe, Spokesperson for the family of Courtney Peters and Manenberg Safety Forum chairperson
Pascoe explains that the Peters family is still grappling with their loss and says the community has had enough of lip service from government leaders.
She and Courtney's mother, Juanita Peters, will appear before Parliament together.
At the same time, the Peters family is looking to find a new home and leave behind the house where their child's alleged killer lived with them and possibly kept her body.
This comes as government marks Child Protection Week from 28 May to 4 June 2017.
During this week, government aims to raise awareness on children's rights, and mobilise all sectors of society to care for and protect children.
