The DA says it is
greatly concerned with the increase of crime in South Africa.
This reaction is due
to the 2014/2015 statistic that were released on Tuesday by Minister of Police
The political party
is most concerned with the murder rate.
The murder rate went
up for the third consecutive year.
They claim that this
is due to National Police Riah Phiyega.
DA MP Dianne Kohler Barnard
explained that to this end South Africa needs effective leadership of the SAPS.
National government has
failed police officers and citizens alike.
“Nowhere is this
clearer than in the actions of police Minister Nathi Nhleko who is more
preoccupied with exonerating President Jacob Zuma in the Nkandla scandal and of
National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega, who is now the subject of an inquiry,
for her conduct contributing to the Marikana Massacre.”
Our SAPS remains
politically and operationally rudderless and countless South Africans lives are
at stake Kohler concluded.
