Well done SAPS
WE need to command members of the police arrived in Limpopo for their swift action in apprehending those suspected of the Heist on the Matlala Road on Tuesday morning.
They carried out the crime in the morning, they had supper behind bars. That is effective policing and we can’t fault them on that. Similar to that Boksburh heist where perpetrators were arrested shortly. Such actions from the police need us a society to stand up and pat them on the back.
Yes it’s their job and they should not be complemented for doing but the speed that the arrests were made it impressive. You also have to keep in mind the number of cases that go cold and are never resolved. As the country is under siege from the robbers, we need are men and women in blue to step up.
I was also pleased to hear Major General Prince Mokotedi who was has been tasked with dealing with heists saying they have complied a list of 122 persons of interest and 20 of them will be arrested in four weeks. That is leadership. That is a sign that our officers are hard at work.
But that is just the tip of the iceberg. More needs to be done. We can’t have a CIT robbery every day. That list must be expedited and more arrests many. Another way to dent their plan is to deal decisively with the supply of explosions and ammunition used for these hideous crime. Once we can mage to close those loopholes, he will start to make inroads.
Keep up the work and do even more.
