It is disheartening that the only time murder and rape matters in this country, is when many are raped or killed at the same time, or a prominent person is the victim.
The community of West Village in Krugersdorp, has been raising issues of crime with the Krugersdorp police station on a daily basis.
All the police has been doing is to record and collect bodies of those killed, and continue with their daily lives, which includes being seen in the company of suspicious elements that are said to be terrorising communities. On the West Rand there are no-go areas, and the local police and the province are aware of this. But because it is black people who are being raped or killed, nothing is being done.The number of women raped on the West Rand is terrifyingly high.
Police minister Bheki Cele in his Louis le Grange hat, is always coming to crime scenes to give poor blacks the false hope that the government cares about them. Why does the government allow unknown people to live in this country who operate with so much impunity that we are left sterile as communities in our own land?
