Bhamshela Community's Outcry for A Police Station

12 July 2013    

  

 

The Inkatha Freedom Party in KwaZulu-Natal will write to the MEC for Community Safety and Liaison, Willies Mchunu and Provincial Commissioner Mamunye Ngobeni, demanding answers on the outstanding Police Station that was set to be built in Bhamshela area, under Ndwendwe Local Municipality.

 

During a visit to the area, Hon. Nkwanyana discovered that the community had a mobile Police Station (Nsuze), however it was shut down due to a shortage of personnel that had been promoted to other areas and were never replaced by the Province. It is alleged that the community is now forced to travel long distances to neighbouring areas in order to utilise the services of the SAPS.

 

“There is a site that was set aside for a Police Station. The site has been there for 10 years, and nobody seems to know what the delay is. The MEC and the Commissioner need to provide us with answers on the delay,” said Hon. Ncamsile Nkwanyana, Member of the Community Safety and Liaison.

 

The IFP will submit questions to the MEC for Community Safety and Liaison, demanding answers as to why Nsuze Police Station was closed.

 

“We don’t want a mobile Police Station, we want the MEC to utilise that site and build a Police Station that will last forever,” said Hon. Nkwanyana.
