Government must share crime intelligence to end attacks in Joburg - Maimane
Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane has called on Police Minister Bheki Cele to ensure there is better intelligence sharing between the SA Police Service (SAPS), the State Security Agency and the City of Joburg.
Maimane says doing so will ensure that there is a better response to the spreading violence against foreign nationals.
Maimane and City of Joburg public safety MMC Michael Sun briefed the media on the DA's efforts to quell the ongoing violence against foreign nationals in the city centre.
