Intelligence agents sleep as thugs rule
As long as our crime intelligence keeps undermining their sources and do not pay them accordingly, crime in South Africa will always be escalating.
What happened at FNB Stadium on Sunday proves that the SAPS handed over their responsibility to other security bodies.
If they had committed enough resources what happened there would not have taken place.
In fact, there is no country in Africa with private security force like SA but crime is still rampant.
For example, we have the SSA (State Security Agency), crime intelligence, military intelligence and other covert intelligence organisations.
With these kind of security personnel we would expect SA to score very high in combating crime.
In fact, we are supposed to be the number one country on the continent in terms of safety, given our resources.
We are also supposed to be winning the war on corruption within our political and government official.
Instead, SA is number one in Africa in terms of corruption. It is indeed a shame that we excel in violent crimes and corruption! Mpinda Skhosana, Soweto
