Speechless

South Africa:

969 murdered children in the financial year 2014/15. The shocking figure has been revealed in a written Parliamentary reply from the Police Ministry.  2013/14 financial year, there were 846 murder cases reported against children. That statistic rose by 14.5% the following year.  Over 600 children were killed with a knife, while firearms were used in almost 400 cases. Other causes of death involved poison, a booted foot, an axe and boiling oil.

Almost 900 children were murdered in South Africa from 2015 to 2016, the Institute of Race Relations has revealed. The new 2017 IRR report revealed that almost 500 000 South Africans have been murdered since 1994, with children being the most affected. Over the past decade almost 10 000 children have been murdered.
These are some of the findings from the 2017 South Africa Survey released by the IRR last month.

67 murdered children alone in the Western Province this year.
