Western Cape MEC for Community Safety Dan Plato is
concerned about the South African Police Services inaccessibility.
This is after allegations that Warrant Officer Paul
Holz tried several times to call the police for help in the attack on the N2
that led to his death.
MEC Plato said in a statement that the Western Cape Government is intent
on ensuring that the SAPS provide a quality service to the people of this
Ministerial Spokesperson Ewald Botha said MEC Plato
today has asked the Acting Provincial Commissioner, Major General Thembisile
Patekile, to investigate the allegations made.
“If there is any truth to any of the claims that
police phones were left unattended, it warrants strong disciplinary action and
managerial intervention to ensure that the same poor policing service delivery
is not repeated” Botha added.
