Lack of resources, manpower, and funding should be blamed for the police not being able to prevent the recent unrest that left the country shamed.

Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Police, Tina Joemat-Pettersson, said if the police were well-equipped, they would have prevented massive looting in parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.

Joemat-Pettersson on Wednesday addressed the media at Maponya Mall in Soweto, a mall that survived looting due to residents' stance against the mayhem.

Portfolio Committee on Police, Tina Joemat-Pettersson, your party members must stop stealing and looting the countries coffers, then there will be more money to go around for the Police and more importantly the poor people that need it most.
Time to look inward, very very hard.

So they admit it is just a social security employment scheme that employs 192,000 SAPS officers the vast majority of which have no vehicles, skills or training required to respond when needed. In most countries that would be enough to convince government to resign out of shame.

Bloated and useless just like the Eskom social security employment scheme. Same as the absurdly oversized and useless civil service social security employment scheme. By design. By government design. Yet government cries for more tax revenue and wishes it could tie the most lucrative tax payers to trees while simultaneously destroying the economy which happens to be the only creator of genuinely employed people. Talk about unsustainable. This is not even the beginning of the serious problems yet to come.

I wonder when the Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Police, Tina Joemat-Pettersson, is going to get the police to investigate the sale of South Africa's strategic oil reserves at below the price of oil when she was Minister of Energy?
