The Inkatha Freedom Party wants South Africa to consider bringing the death penalty back.
With violent and sexual crimes being such a scourge on the country, many people have wondered if having the death sentence would change things.
The IFP's Chief Whip Narend Singh has turned to the Joint Constitutional Review Committee about talking about bringing back the death penalty.
The Citizen reports the IFP feels that South Africans are sick and tired of the rate at which crimes against women and children is increasing.
The IFP stated early on Friday stating they want to urgently discuss bringing back this drastic punishment.
The party wants South Africans to have an honest and open debate over the matter. The crimes against women and children are rising and becoming more and more serious.
The IFP feels the way these crimes are being handled aren't really working and wants South Africa to consider alternative solutions like bringing back the death penalty.
The death penalty in South Africa was taken away 28 years ago.
