SAPS management captured by criminals waging crime war with citizens

“South Africa is a bloodbath. There is no other way to describe it,” said Ian Cameron, director of community safety at Action Society. “Women and children are in grave danger every single day. This is a war.”

According to the South African Police Service’s (SAPS) pre-released report on crime statistics for quarter three of 2022/23, almost all crime spiked between October and December last year.

The murder of women increased by 22,1% from the previous year to 1 101 murders. That is 12 women murdered every day. In addition, four children are murdered every day. We see the rape of 138 people per day – that is one reported rape every ten minutes. During the three months, another 7 555 people lost their lives to murder. More than 27 000 people have been killed during the past twelve months.

The South African Police Service does not have any preventative measures in place. We have no crime intelligence to speak of, and all the country’s detectives are severely overworked. It all flows down from the compromised senior ranks of the police.

“We are in this war because of cadre deployment and political interference in matters concerning criminal justice,” said Cameron. “The ANC does not want the criminal justice system to work properly because they would be caught out as the biggest crime syndicate this country has seen in the past thirty years.”

Action Society has advocated for various changes to the criminal justice system, with a specific list of solutions prioritising letting the incompetent Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, go. It is time to implement workable solutions for South Africans to survive this war.

Is there justice in SA?
