Using the army to fight crime will be a bad move
The SA government is going back to being a military state.
The problem with our current government is that the minister of police [Fikile Mbalula] can't even handle a pistol but he is now rushing to use people who are handling rifles, sub-machine guns, bazookas and so on.
We are not a fascist country. How can the minister of police jump from swearing at criminals to touting military weapons as a solution to ordinary crime?
The problem with Mbalula is that he thinks that pointing a machine gun at a person, whether he is a thug or thief, is a solution to lowering crime in the country. Mbalula, please depend on the police for now. Time will tell whether the military can be used to curb crime in South Africa.
