House Chairperson, I move without notice:
That the House-
1) notes the latest developments in the Jesse Hess case, where two suspects have been apprehended and appeared in court for murder, rape and aggravated robbery;
2) congratulates the police for their hard work, particularly the compassion and support provided by the lead investigator, Colonel Pretorius, which contributed to the progress made;
3) thanks Minister Lindiwe Zulu for her engagement with Jesse's aunt, Sandra Hess, which made a difference and helped the family to know that Jesse was not forgotten; and
4) acknowledges that as we deal with the scourge of violence amplified during women's month, each one
of us has a role to play in making our country a place of hope and healing for those affected by violence.
