The Democratic Alliance said the brutal gunning down of innocent civilians on the Cape Flats must be laid directly at the doors of Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa and President Jacob Zuma. 

Over the weekend five people were killed in alleged gang related shootings in Mitchell’s Plain. 

DA MP of Police Dianne Kohler Barnard said specialised policing units have proven to be an effective strategy.

Barnanrd said the South African Police Service is a national competence, and the deployment of specialised units such as the Anti-Gang Units remains their responsibility.

“The DA and the Western Cape Government has repeatedly called upon the ANC government for the reintroduction of the Anti Gang Units closed down by then National Police Commissioner, Jackie Selebi. These calls have gone unheeded due to this, thousands of community members continue to live a life in fear.” Barnard added.
