Nine-year-old Sadia Sukhraj Laid to rest

CHATSWORTH – Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane called on the police service to be bolstered in the wake of nine-year-old Sadia Sukhraj’s death during a botched Durban hijacking.

Sukhraj was buried on Tuesday afternoon, a day after she was shot in the stomach near her Shallcross, Durban, home.

Maimane speaking at his capacity as a pastor spoke during the procession offered a short prayer over Sadia Sukhraj’s open casket before she was taken to her final resting place.

He added that this is one crime that the DA wants to ensure never happens again.

He said, “I’ll be taking this matter to Parliament… to say that as we usher in Child Protection Week, what kind of society are we going to live in when our children are being killed in this manner?”

Thousands had gathered and paid their respects, many of them breaking down at the sight of the open casket and hugging and offering comfort to Sukhraj’s parents Shailendra and Lorraine.

After the casket lift the Christian Revival Centre, the heavens opened as heavy downpours hit the area, some called it a blessing amid the tragedy.
