Another march planned in solidarity with Mija and Michael Kliment

BY JESICA SLABBERT - JULY 13, 2016

Another solidarity march has been planned in support of efforts to bring Port Elizabeth father, Michael Kliment, and his daughter, Mija, back to South Africa.

Michael recently made headlines after travelling to Slovakia were he allegedly snatched his daughter outside her school sparking and landing himself in legal challenges in that country.

On Monday evening, a group of local residents, who included his family and friends, marched down Cape Road, in Port Elizabeth, to show support for Michael.

The man behind that march, Shaun Kapp, who is a colleague of Michael at the Dragon Suburbs karate dojo, says he has organised another march to take place since many supporters could not find time to join in Monday evening’s march.

The second march will take place this Sunday and will start at 14h00 from the Hunters Retreat Hotel and continue down Cape Road until they reach the bridge at St Marks Academy before turning back.

Kapp expects this march to be much bigger than the first one and inspire more support for the Bring Back Mija Campaign.

A police car will be present to ensure the safety of the marchers as they walk down the streets.
