1000 rapists on the prowl

A thousand men suspected of being serial rapists are walking the streets.

Police Minister Nathi Nhleko has not signed a policy document basic to assisting the police in tracking and arresting them as “there are a lot of things in the queue”.

The document would authorise the streamlining of investigations and ensure closer co-operation between various police units and police and prosecutors.

The minister’s spokesman said the implementation of the policies was a priority.
