ANC Welcomes the Police Ministry's mobile Police Station for Masi

19 November 2015

The ANC Branch in Masiphumelele welcomes the important intervention by the Deputy Minister of Police, Maggie Sotyu, to provide a mobile police station to service the community whilst conducive land is being sort for a permanent structure.

The ANC Branch, along with the ANC Woman's League, had conscientized the Deputy Minister of the need to make this critical intervention as early as August and we were pleased, a month later, when the Minister decided to visit the community in person and to make the commitment to bring the Mobile Police Station.

True to her word, a month later, the Deputy Minister is handing over the mobile police station tomorrow, 20 Novemver 2015, and we commend the swiftness of her actions.

As the ANC we are fully aware that the socio-economic issues faced by the Masiphumelele community and other informal settlement go beyond safety and security, hence we have engaged other departments, such as social development, in order to have a multi prong approach in how we deal with the important issues aching the community.

The absence and oblivion of the Provincial department throughout this trying time in Masiphumelele is not only a brutal reflection of an uncaring provincial government but yet again a clear message by that this provincial government is for a select few.

As an ANC Branch we will continue to lead the community in its quest to free itself of crime, drugs, gangsters and other social ills.
