Cape pickets held to reinstate Jeremy Veary

Various Cape Town Community members alongside activists and religious leaders marched to Parliament on Wednesday in support of Major-General Jeremy Vearey.

Veary was recently fired over comments he made on social media. The former police boss faced a disciplinary hearing where it was revealed that he put SAPS into disrepute for allegedly taking swipes at national police commissioner Khehla Sitole on Facebook.

He came under fire for posts he made on the platform, containing “derogatory, offensive, insulting and disrespectful” language towards Sitole.

Community picketed to various police stations, including Mitchell’s Plain, Ravensmead, Bishop Lavis, Elsies River asnd Bonteheuwel.

A memorandum was handed over to parliamentary official, Charles Ford, by the dean of St George’s Cathedral, Rev. Michael Weeder.
