The Democratic Alliance said several
times Minister of Police Nathi Mthethwa has dodged the bullet including not
being held accountable for high profile cases including the Marikana Massacre
and the death of Andries Tatane.
DA MP of Police Dianne Kohler
Barnard said it is even more concerning that Minister Mthethwa has no clear
plan on how to tackle the issue of police brutality.
Barnard said it is Nathi Mthethwa in
his capacity as the political head of the Department of Police, and not
provincial and local office bearers who should ultimately be held accountable
for the conduct of SAPS officers.
“The time for Nathi Mthethwa to go
is long overdue. Indeed he should do the
honourable thing and resign” Barnard added.
