Child Justice Act | Calls for better treatment of underage offenders

The Centre for Child Law is calling for proper implementation of the Child Justice Act when dealing with children who allegedly contravene the law due to substance use. It believes that emphasis should be placed on treating children for drug dependency rather than criminalising, incarcerating and punishing them. The centre has referred the matter to the Constitutional Court. Isabel Magaya, from the Centre for Child Law, discusses. Courtesy #DStv403 #eNCA
