DA’s list for new Safety and Security Minister

The Democratic Alliance has identified ten key priorities for newly appointed Safety and Security Minister, Nathi Mthethwa.

DA’s spokesperson on Safety and Security, Dianne Kohler Barnard, said an effective plan to tackle crime must be one of the new government’s top concerns.

Kohler Barnard said they will be monitoring the new minister’s attention to these priorities closely.

“All South Africans have been affected by crime and all of us want to see South Africa become a safer country. Yet we recently learned, with utter horror, that the SAPS conviction rate for contact crime is a lowly 19%. Clearly the new Minsiter has his work cut out for him.”

First on the list is a call for Mthethwa to immediately dismiss suspended National Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi.

“They done it with Robert McBride, there is no reason that we should be paying him a million rand or so, to sit at home.”

The DA has also called on the new minister to reinstate the Scorpions.
