The Western Cape African
Christian Democratic Party leader, Ferlon Christians says, the increase in
drug-related incidents, car and truck hijackings and the continual battle
against gangsterism are all hallmarks that still have a long way to go in the
fight against crime.
Christians was responding to
the national crime statistics released yesterday.
In a statement issued,
Christians says corruption within the police service should be addressed and
that rotten apples should be disposed of.
Christians explained that it
was frustrating that 85% of Western Cape police stations have been left
under-staffed and under resourced during the period of those statistics.
He feels that sufficient
staffing at police stations will drastically improve the crime battles facing
the Western Cape.
