With 4500 civil claims against the police in Gauteng, 139 lost service weapons and only 38% of police officials who passed their shooting competency tests, the people of Gauteng cannot trust or take the Department for Community Safety seriously.
South Africa and Gauteng are on fire. The reasons for this are infinite and call for a debate on its own. The budget allocated to the Gauteng Department for Community Safety means nothing if the officials are incompetent and if the structures are riddled with corruption.
Illegal land grabs and farm attacks are on the rise in Gauteng and the ANC government cannot offer any solutions. In Lenasia and Hekpoort, innocent people have landed in the crossfire because the ANC made opportunist yet empty promises.
The Johannesburg Metro Police Service, which was supposed to serve and protect the public, are instead intimidating and harassing the public.
The FF Plus will not stand idly by and watch as communities’ constitutional right to live and work in a safe environment gets trampled by corrupt safety officials.
