Port Elizabeth - Police Minister Bheki Cele was back in Port Elizabeth on Thursday and visited several murder hotspots in the city’s gang-ridden Northern Areas.
Cele was accompanied by Eastern Cape Provincial Commissioner Liziwe Nshinga and Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Mongameli Bobani.
The visit kicked off at the 10111 centre in Schauderville whereafter Cele visited the Bethelsdorp and Chatty areas to engage with residents.
Responding to community concerns in the city’s Northern Areas, Cele acknowledged that some of the police were not working hand in glove with community members.
He said one of the biggest problems in Nelson Mandela Bay was the possession of illegal firearms.
