In another shocking revelation‚ Cele said the South African Police Service had substantially reduced the number of its personnel.
“We are 10 000 police fewer than last year.
“We have lost the United Nations norm of policing which says 1 policeman to 220 citizens. One police officer is now looking at almost double that.”
Cele is promising to improve the situation.
“On behalf of the government of South Africa‚ I’m putting all the police general’s heads on the block.”
He placed a specific focus on training to improve how police officials deal with crimes against women.
