Let’s maybe try to work towards that going forward. Madam Speaker, therefore, in creating the South Africa that we want, a thorough prognosis and understanding of the current status quo is equally important in order to determine the strength of the manpower, machinery, technology and partnerships needed to formulate a convincing and realistic response to the priorities, and fundamental goals as directed by the President. The Justice, Crime Prevention and Security, JCPS’ collective approach in responding to the service delivery agreement of ensuring that the people of South Africa are and feel safe will

This is in line with the National Development Plan Vision 2030 that; people living in South Africa should feel safe at home, at school and at work and that they enjoy community life without fear, women walk freely in the streets and children play safely outside and in the gardens. Mr President, this is one priority that you made a call for, and we are determined to achieve it. Unfortunately, I did not hear the hon member Groenewald as he was speaking about the farmers because I left the House to go and see the family at the Lavender Hill where the police was gunned down and killed at 4’o clock this morning. So, this violence that you are talking about is something that we feel everyday, it’s something that we experience, it’s something that we touch and it is something that we are a part of. So, we can’t dilly-dally around it. We need to put all the efforts regardless of political affiliation, colour or anything because once it comes close to you, you understand it better.

In the new dawn, our policing approach will align with the new crime patterns of enhancing resources in combating economic crimes, in stabilising the troubled trucking industry in transport and the zama zamas which are notorious in mine hijackings. Last year, these zama zamas, took R41 billion out of the economy. So, it is nothing but economic sabotage and we really have to work on it and make sure that South African money goes where it’s supposed to go - to all South Africans.

The specialised focussed policing will also extend to support the specialised task teams focussing on political killings, police killings, high profile killings, high profile cases and taxi related killings. Madam speaker, the fight against corruption is currently intensified. The Hawks are making

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
