CT NGO urges police to improve their services
Ndifuna Ukwazi’s Zackie Achmat said civil society organisations in Khayelitsha are running out of patience.
CAPE TOWN - A Cape Town NGO says that a year after a damning report into the state of policing in Khayelitsha was released, not much has been done to improve security in the township.
The Khayelitsha commission of inquiry was established by Western Cape premier Helen Zille due to concerns over the quality of policing in the township.
Ndifuna Ukwazi director Zackie Achmat said civil society organisations in Khayelitsha are running out of patience.
Speaking at a police resource seminar Achmat said a year after the conclusion of the Khayelitsha commission of inquiry and its recommendations have seemingly been ignored.
The seminar has been snubbed by senior police provincial leadership, except for a few sub-stations commanders, who are attending.
Achmat has again urged police to urgently improve their services.
