Very fruitful public hearing in George yesterday re the Community Safety bill.
I’m still aghast at the blanket rejection by the ANC and partners which can be summed up in these pearls of wisdom from their appointed spokespeople:
- ‘there is no problem with SAPS’,
- ‘they don’t need communuty and dept oversight’,
- ‘community police forums and neighborhood watches don’t need empowering’, etc.
Off to Beaufort West today for round 2
