The IFP is deeply distressed by the growing
number of violent crimes being committed in Kloof, Pinetown,
Westriding, Waterfall and Hillcrest in Durban. IFP Spokesperson
on Police, Mr. Velaphi Ndlovu said, "We hope the plan tabled by
KwaZulu-Natal commissioner, Lieutenant-General Mmamonnye Ngobeni
of deploying an additional 68 officers in the Upper Highway area
will prove to be fruitful in curbing the horrific crime rate
which is so rampant in this area."
Ndlovu continued, "Police officers must be
visible in all communities at all times. This is the only
solution. Criminals will not target areas which have a high and
consistent police presence".
The IFP sends its deepest condolences to the
family of Herman Potgieter and other victims of these violent
crimes. We further call upon the police services to act swiftly
in apprehending the criminals so that the law may take its
course and justice be served.
