Parliament puts Nyganga cops on the spot
CAPE TOWN – Parliament is investigating the state of policing in what’s regarded the country’s crime capital — Nyanga in Cape Town.
Members of the police portfolio committee visited the township on Wednesday and gave police a two-week deadline to come up with solutions.
The investigation comes just days after a Commission of Inquiry released its scathing report on policing in Khayelitsha.
Nyanga residents say the high level of crime makes living here a nightmare.
Many are too scared to have their identities revealed, fearing they will be killed by criminals.
There has also been an investigation into policing in another troubled township – Khayelitsha.
A Commission of Inquiry released its findings on Monday, saying policing in Khayelitsha is in shambles.
Now, the parliamentary committee is demanding answers from provincial police commissioner Arno Lamoer about policing in Nyanga.
Lamoer has been given two weeks to report back to Parliament.
