“She did not complete the necessary firearm training,” Cameron continued, “but the documents indicate she did a maintenance shooting test in 2021.
“This is like going for your driver’s licence without having a learner’s licence.”
He said the charge of crimen injuria against him did not worry him.
“I became aware of it through the media,” Cameron said. “I am convinced chances of me being convicted are very low.”
David Olivier, AfriForum Safety Specialist for the Southern Cape, weighed in on the matter by saying Mochologi’s appointment is “another example of the ANC government’s corrupt policy regarding cadre deployment.
“AfriForum is of the opinion that, based on the facts about Major General Mochologi that were revealed in the media, she definitely does not have the capabilities to lead and support operational personnel.
“General Mochologi is in no way equipped to provide the necessary strategic and operational directives to station commanders under her leadership to combat the high levels of organised crime in the Overberg, especially in the Overstrand.
“Should senior police management in the district lack the ability to implement a turnaround strategy for the current levels of serious crime it will have a serious impact on the economic growth of the area.”
Mochologi emphasised that, despite the storm that has erupted around her, she will remain focused on her task.
“I was appointed to fight crime in the Overberg and that is what I will do. I just want the communities’ support.”
