Higher Education Minister, Blade Nzimande, says the high unemployment rate and lack of youth centres play a major role on the spike in violence and killings, in Imbali township and other surrounding locations of Pietermaritzburg.

These criminal activities have resulted in the community living in fear for the past few months.

Speaking during his visit the Durban University of Technology’s Indumiso Campus as part of a stakeholder engagement, Nzimande has welcomed Police Minister Bheki Cele’s visit to Imbali and plans to fight against these criminal elements.

Nzimande has also urged the community members and leaders to play a role in fighting crime in the area.

Speaking on higher education matters, Nzimande further says the collaboration of different institutions with the aim of working together is opening a new and better path.

The visit is part of his stakeholder engagement project that started in 2014, the Imbali Education and Innovation Precinct.

The R5 million project is currently a pilot in Imbali and Greater Edendale.

Nzimande further says one of his wishes is that the precinct includes a cultural and historic area.
