JOHANNESBURG - The recent murder of eight-year-old Tazne Van Wyk has once again rattled South Africans.
Tazne's body was discovered in a stormwater drain along the N1 outside Worcester after she'd been missing for two weeks.
The 54-year-old accused appeared in court on charges of murder and kidnapping.
The South African National Police Commissioner has said our society is decaying and something needs to be done.
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."
