Western Cape office of the Ombudsman is up and running and Advocate Vusi Pikoli
says his main focus of the office is to receive and investigate complaints from
the public regarding police inefficiencies.
Pikoli said his office will seek to foster good relations between the police
and the communities to make sure that both work well together.
Helen Zille appointed Advocate Pikoli to head the office in 2014 following the
Commission of Inquiry into policing in Khayelitsha.
added that police inefficiency will manifest itself in the form of poor service
delivery when the members of the public complain, it will be because they are
not getting good service from the police.
the police would not respond immediately or even not respond at all. That’s
enough of a cause for them to lodge a complaint to my office and my office will
have to investigate that complaint.” Pikoli added.
