Explain to me how BMW's are going to counter gang related crime in the Cape Flats?
Problem I have with that, is that the money spent on those cars, could have been better served in bringing more people into the force. The police need more people out in the field.

Maybe it's a few higher up's in the force that have commandeered a few Lamborghini's for personal use and put them on the books as work use....

Elevated from Western Cape to national SAPS: https://www.dailymaverick.co.za/art...e-elevates-anti-gang-unit-to-national-office/
Police Minister Bheki Cele has elevated the Anti-Gang Unit to national office and announced the establishment of a new Detective Academy.
Western Cape activist, Colin Arendse, who has been at the forefront of highlighting the power play in the Western Cape, told Daily Maverick that the announcement suggested that Cele had “check-mated” National Commissioner Khehla Sitole.

Sitole appears to have been unwilling or unable to deal with tensions between the Anti-Gang Unit, launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa in 2018, and rival units that had been set up and that have operated in direct competition, depleting resources of other units.
