The 7-year-old girl raped by her 60-year-old stepfather and two male relatives, are proof that the National Register for Sex Offenders (NRSO) must be made public urgently.

According to police spokesperson Brigadier Mohale Ramatseba the horrifying abuse, that began in January this year, were uncovered last Friday. The young girl has been brutally raped and her purity has been destroyed by these monsters. Medical examination indicated that the minor has been infected with sexually transmitted diseases. The three men have since been arrested.”The South African Government must make the NRSO available to the public to ensure transparency in our communities and for the safekeeping of our children,” says Action Society spokesperson, Daleen Gouws.

This newfound civil rights organisation launched their “Know your neighbour” campaign during SA’s National Child Protection week earlier this month  — urging President Cyril Ramaphosa to publicly release the NRSO as soon as possible

“We need to know who the sexual predators are. One assumes that your loved ones are surrounded by people that are ‘safe’, but are they? Do we truly know our neighbours? Are there persons in our close community who are listed on the NRSO?”

Action Society calls on the public to sign their petition (www.actionsociety.co.za/national-register) and request the President to address this distressing issue as soon as possible.

Furthermore Action Society also calls for life sentencing of offenders found guilty of sex crimes against children. “If we can’t know who they are, then they should be in prison for life. We can’t have them in our society.”
