Residents of Khayelitsha and several civil rights groups marched to Parliament today to raise their frustration at the failure by police commissioner to implement recommendations of the Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry.
The march was also to call for fair distribution of policing resources in the townships and to eradicate the spate of vigilantism.
In the fore front of the march were the Social Justice Coalition (SJC) and Ndifuna Ukwazi, who say that more than 1 000 murders take place in Khayelitsha every year, and that calls for more policing in the area.
CapeTalk’s John Maytham spoke to Phumeza Mlungwana, General-Secretary for Social Justice Coalition (SJC)
According to Mlungwana this was a successful match based on the community’s involvement. They are currently waiting for the Minister’s response to their demands and to know if the recommendations will be finally implemented.
