ANC welcomes re-deployment of Municipal police

7 March 2002

The ANC Western Cape welcomes the redeployment of the Municipal Police Force to areas where crime is rife on the Cape Flats.

Said ANC Provincial Secretary Mcebisi Skwatsha: "We welcome the redeployment of the Municipal Police to areas on the Cape Flats.

"This what we have been calling for a long time ago.

"We commend the Community Safety MEC Leonard Ramatlakane for his firmness and consistency on this issue in spite of the intransigence of the DA administration.

"This once again underlines the commitment of the new ANC-NNP provincial government to care for the poorest of the poor, unlike the previous DA government.

"Every new step the provincial government announces, is a break away from DA rule. This is not business as usual.

"The ANC is committed to transformation and the safety of the poor."

For further enquiries contact Provincial Secretary Mcebisi Skwatsha 082-829-7452, or Provincial Media Officer Gert Witbooi 082-570-9118.
