Task team tackles illegal mining

A 12-member task team to specifically tackle illegal mining in Matjhabeng was unveiled at the Ministerial Imbizo held in Welkom.

Police Commissioner Bheki Cele hosted the imbizo, which was held on 23 August.

He answered questions posed to him by the residents of Matjhabeng.

“The task team which has been assembled will go a long way in dealing with the complaints of the com­munity.

“The national police management has taken a decision that operational response services units such as operational task teams targeting specific crimes will be rolled out nationally,” said Cele.

The community members of Thabong used the imbizo to raise their policing concerns of illegal mining and increasing gang and drug related crimes.

Residents filled up the Kopanong outdoor arena in Welkom and interacted with minister Cele and SAPS management, including officials from the Inde­pendent Police Investigative Directorate and the National Prosecution Authority.

Some complained about corruption amongst some police members and the unavailability of police vehicles to respond to crime.

Cele has instructed the Provincial Commissioner, Lt Gen. David Sempe to urgently look into the claims of police who are not ser­vicing the community as they should.
