Tonight with Lester Podcast

Forced begging


Guest : Peggy De Kock

We received a mail from CapeTalk Listener Peggy de Kock
On Saturday 11th May , on corner of Wale and Rose st, outside Atlas Foods. There stood
a boy ,about 12 years old, begging. His hands were tied to a cup, so he held out his arms,
but could not use his hands at all, they were tied with many layers of thick string. His
face was fear and utter despair.
I do not have a smart phone so could not take a photo. I phoned Child Line on page 2 of
the telephone book,which was answered in Gauteng, Cape Town Child Line only
operates Monday to Friday.
What do your listeners think I could have done to help this child?

Peggy joins on the line to describe the scene.
