PARLIAMENT - Cabinet has approved a National Anti-Gangsterism Strategy to address gangsterism in all forms.

Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe says dealing with gangsterism can not only be a matter of law enforcement by the police, but that communities should be part of the process to deal with gangsters.

At a post-Cabinet briefing at Parliament on Thursday morning, Radebe said Minister of Police Nkosinathi Nhleko would make further announcements in this regard soon.

Radebe says the Anti-Gangsterism Strategy is aligned to the National Development Plan to ensure that all South Africans feel safe, and that their communities live free of fear.
