Nhleko bringing party politics into Khayelitsha, says Social Justice Coalition

The Social Justice Coalition (SJC) has criticised Police Minister Nathi Nhleko for compromising safety in Khayelitsha with party politics.

Nhleko hosted community members and relevant stakeholders at a police imbizo in Khayelitsha on Saturday.

The SJC, which as actively called for better policing resources in Khayelitsha, was left disappointed by Nhleko's visit to Khayelitsha, saying that his address at the imbizo was fruitless.

Listen to the full conversation (with Koketso Sachane standing in) on CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:

The imbizo was meant to debate the recommendations of the Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry.

Minister Nhleko said that the police are implementing some of the recommendations of the Commission.
