Mbalula says he has no respect for criminals - but the job to do away with criminality is not only for the man in blue alone but a partnership with society.

The police are going to be an amplifier of peace and law restoration in our communities.

On issues that are still outstanding, like the case of former Hawks head Berning Ntlemeza, Mbalula says he is still waiting to get a hand over a report for matters that are up for litigation.

He says he will seek advice before making a decision on those issues.
