KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala says the provincial government has started a process towards engaging communities and has developed an intense social cohesion programme that will promote unity among Africans and Indians to ensure peace and harmony.
Zikalala said the Communities-in-Dialogue Programme will be activated on an urgent basis and will employ the services of conflict resolution facilitators. Instability and conflict management monitoring, and evaluation will also be conducted in order to determine the impact of interventions.
“We have tasked the Justice, Crime Prevention and Security Cluster to conduct workshops on the legal framework that regulates the operation of neighbourhood watch forums. Everyone must stick to this legal framework under the leadership of the SAPS and other law enforcement agencies,” Zikalala said.
