Press Statement: Centre for Child Law responds to the article on IOL titled "Abused, Orphaned Children go Hungry after R7M 'disappears'" dated 8 July 2018

The Centre is gravely concerned about the conditions reported on in the IOL article dated 8 July 2018 regarding the treatment of the children housed at Father Smangaliso Mkhatshwa Child and Youth Care Centre (CYCC).

This is not the first CYCC to have sub-standard care, the Centre has in the past intervened on behalf of children who were in CYCCs with similar or worse problems and it is disheartening to see children who are already traumatised by the situations that led to them being removed from their parental or family environment, being failed by those tasked to protect them.

Press Statement: Child Marriage

The Centre notes with concern the report from the Commission for Gender Equality ("CGE") given at Parliament on Wednesday, stating that approximately 91 000 children of school-going-age are married.

The Centre is extremely concerned about the increasing incidence of child marriage in the country and the impact that this has on children and children's rights. Child marriage denies the rights of children and subjects them to a multitude of abuses.

The married child is often prevented from returning to school due to the commonly held view that schooling interferes with the child's duty as a "wife". Further, child marriage is likely to cause life-long trauma to children; particularly as children are removed from their family and peers and as stated by the CGE, required to "perform a wife's duties".
