A local cop, @Sergeant Andrew Nhlati, and his wife have received high praise after they personally went out of their way to see to it that two children who suffered neglect at the hands of their mother were sent to school after two years of not attending.
"In September 2020 an anonymous report was made to the police of three children aged 2, 8, and 11 years roaming the streets of Jan Kempdorp alone at midnight. Police followed up and found the children malnourished and physically abused.
"The mother was arrested and appeared in the Jan Kempdorp Magistrate’s Court and was released on a warning and the children were removed from her care. It was also discovered that the children did not attend school for two consecutive years.
"Detective Sergeant Nhlati and his wife went the extra mile to secure admission for the 8-year-old girl and the 11-year-old boy at a local primary school. They also bought complete sets of school uniforms for the brother and sister while the 2-year-old girl was also clothed by the couple."
Many people thanked the officer for his dedication to making the world a better place. Read a few of their comments below:

"In you we have a community leader, keep up the good work my brother, not forgetting your spouse."
Amanda Magqaza said:
