Mahlangu further added that if parents find out that their children have been taken uphill without their consent, they should initiate a case with the police and also report to the Provincial Initiative Coordinating Committee (PICC).
Mahlangu says: “The law will play a role for those who damage the reputation of iNgoma. If parents find that such things are happening, they should report missing or abducted children to the police. A committee from the Provincial Initiative Coordinating Committee (PICC) will be tasked with conducting an investigation, after which it will call the police as the authorities are discerning to make arrests. “
