Over a hundred police served with eviction notices

by Danika Marquis

Police suicides may increase as over 150 officers are evicted from police housing. Western Cape junior police members have recently been served eviction notices to make room for senior officers. One of the men to be evicted from the police flats, a corporal who doesn’t want to be named, warns that this action may lead these police to take their own lives out of desperation. According to South African police union spokesperson Billy Daniels, the police blame Provincial Police Commissioner Mzwandile Petros for the evictions, after he promised housing to new senior members, who he brought to the province. In the meantime, police work has been affected as the inspector says the evictions make it difficult to concentrate on work as they worry what will become of their families in the months to come.
