This is according Police Minister Bheki Cele, who addressed residents in Mau-Mau in Nyanga yesterday.
The visit was in his capacity as ANC NEC member, but he said he could not ignore residents’ concerns about crime and took the opportunity to address the police ministry’s crime prevention operations in the province. Cele also visited ANC veteran 75-year-old Thandiwe Ngamlana to get first hand information on what measures should be taken to combat crime in Mau-Mau.
Cele told a gathering of about 100 people at Ilinge Primary School that construction of a mobile police station in Samora Machel had already started.
He acknowledged that at Nyanga police station there were 90 police officers compared to the 220 that the station was supposed to have been allocated.
