'Why are we urging the homeless to sleep in groups?'
Tshwane Leadership Foundation's Wayne Renkin says the spate of murders that appear to be targeted at homeless people in Pretoria have exposed a number of systemic issues.
The bodies of four homeless men have been discovered over the past few weeks.
There are reports that police have urged the homeless to sleep in groups.
Renkin explains however that the homeless community is already vulnerable as it is.
We are saying to one of the most vulnerable population in our society you must keep yourself safe by sleeping in groups.Wayne Renkin, Acting chairperson - Tshwane Leadership Foundation
We are not addressing the systemic issue. The systemic issue is that people are homeless.Wayne Renkin, Acting chairperson - Tshwane Leadership Foundation
Do we care about these people that are now fearing for their lives? Would we have someone who is going around murdering homeless people if there were appropriate housing for them?Wayne Renkin, Acting chairperson - Tshwane Leadership Foundation
