Khehla Sitole said urgent action is needed.

"This is serious deterioration of moral fibre, it's also a societal problem and we are mobilising that one to <a> community forum. We will deal decisively with the criminals, but also we'd like the societal problems to be resolved, as a contribution to the police, we have designed a moral fibre investment strategy and we've thrown it to CPF so we can work together."
