ANC Western Cape echoes pleas for appointment of top cop to stamp out femicide
The ANC in the Western Cape says it will put pressure on Police Minister Bheki Cele to appoint a police commissioner in the province.
ANC WC coordinator, Ronalda Nalumango, says a commissioner is needed to help fight the scourge of gender-based violence in the province.
