Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa has denied that the force lacks enough bullet proof vests.

Following the killing of 56 police members so far this year, Mthethwa said it was essential for police to wear the vests and for them to receive more training to minimise deaths at the hands of armed criminals.

The Minister says the force has 200-thousand vests and station managers will be held responsible if members fail to wear them.
