Whether, in the event of a tip-off, the SA Police Service has a protocol in place to immediately respond and prevent an imminent farm attack; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details;

Reply:

  1. Yes, a protocol is in place.

Tip-offs are typically reported to the 08600 10111 Crime Stop share-call number, a police station or the Rural Safety Coordinator, attached to a police station.

The protocol entails that information relating to an impending farm attack, which is shared w1h a Crime Stop Line agent, will be communicated to the 10111 Centre or the Police Station nearest to the farm or smallholding where the incident might occur, for an emergency response.

Any tip on reported to a police station or its Rural Safety Coordinator, will be directed to the Station Commander, to activate an integrated operational response.

The reviewed National Rural Safety Strategy also makes provision for an early warning system and a crime intelligence capacity in the exiting Operational Command Centre (OCC), at national, provincial, district and police station levels.

The OCC was established, to ensure enhanced command and control at the functional operational levels, through the elective reporting functioning and coordination of activities, on a 24-hour basis.

The role of the OCC is to support the crime combating operations of the SAPS its stabilisation and normalisation plans to effect crime reduction, focused intelligence-led policing, enhanced incident response and the activation and coordination of specialised capacities, within the South African Police Service (SAPS).

In the event that a crime has already been committed, the existing 72-hour activation plan, comes into effect. The plan is activated immediately after a serious and noteworthy violent crime has been committed, by mobilising the integrated operational environment of the SAPS to speedily track, trace and apprehend/arrest the suspect/s, within 72 hours.

  1. The Minister of Police will decide if he will make a statement, in this regard.

In view of the finding in the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) report into the water canon spray in BellVille earlier this year, that the SA Police Service could not find any wrongdoing in their actions, how does he justify the actions of the police officers against vulnerable and ill persons;

Reply:

 

  • IPID investigate cases in terms of its mandate as per section 28 of IPID Act 1 of 2011. This matter was referred to IPID by MEC Fritz of the Western Cape Provincial Government in terms of section 28 (1)(h) of IPID Act 1 of 2011.
  • Based on the investigation of incident in question where IPID found no offence or misconduct was committed by members of SAPS.
  • IPID confirmed that SAPS acted within the law, as they were called for intervention to assist in the crowd management and enforcement of the Disaster Management Act at the SASSA Bellville offices.
  • SAPS intervened upon request by SASSA to assist in crowd management and in execution of their duties ensure the use of non-lethal intervention, managing the crowd; being the grant recipients, in implementing the Disaster Management Act to maintain social distancing and Crowd Control Management.
  • IPID therefore did not recommend any action to be taken against the members as they were acting within confines of the law and no misconduct was committed in terms of SAPS regulations.

 

(2) Whether the IPID report is the final report on this matter; if not, will there be further investigation; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply from IPID:

A. The IPID report is final, there is no further investigation to be conducted on the above complaint herein by IPID.

Whether his department has any plans to ensure that the officers and other members of the SA Police Service ensure that the mandate and objectives of the Veza tool that was launched by Corruption Watch on Wednesday, 17February 2021, and which aims to play a role in strengthening police accountability in the Republic by making information, tools and tips accessible to the general population, are effectively realized with full cooperation and without any undue interruption; if not, why not, if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The South African Police Service (SAPS) has taken note of the initiatives by Corruption Watch and appreciates any initiatives by civil organizations in the fight against crime. However, the SAPS has already implemented a Complaints Hotline, to enable members of the public to report complaints against the SAPS and incidents of corruption maladministration within the SAPS. The “My SAPS” Application, provides more or less the same capabilities as the Corruption Watch initiative tool and provides members of the public with the contact details of police stations and offices, as well as the capability to report incidents of corruption.

Whether has he been informed of the alarming statistics of the recent 2021 survey carried out by a statistics website, Numbeo.com, which ranked six South African cities among the global top 20 of the most dangerous cities (details furnished); if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) how is his department planning to ensure that the Republic forges a better reputation in the global communities and (b) what are the details of the implementation strategy of such efforts?

Reply:

Yes, the Management of the South African Police Service (SAPS) is aware of the recent, 2021 survey, which was carried out by a statistics website, Numeo.com. The cities identified in the survey, according to the rankings, are as follows:

Pretoria

Number 3

eThekwini (Durban)

Number 4

Johannesburg

Number 5

Pietermaritzburg

Number 7

Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth)

Number 14

Cape Town

Number 16

It should be noted that the Crime Index is based on surveys from visitors to the website. To generate a current index, data up to 36 months old is used and includes only cities for which there are at least a certain number of contributors.

The table below provides a perspective on the number of participants over a 36 month period:

Pretoria

280

eThekwini (Durban)

240

Johannesburg

676

Pietermaritzburg

81

Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth)

103

Cape Town

510

Although the content of the survey is noted, the number of participants is indeed marginal if measured against the total population of each of these


The SAPS initiated the Safer Cities Project in collaboration with Strategic stakeholders, such as municipalities and went beyond the above mentioned six cities to also include Emalahleni, Polokwane, Rustenburg, Mangaung and Kimberley.

In the above cities, with the exception of Pietermaritzburg, the initiation process has been concluded, led by the SAPS Management and in some instances by the Minister or Deputy Minister of Police, who engaged with provincial and local government to brief them on the project and agreed on joint mechanisms for the development and implementation of a Safer Cities Project.

The implementation strategy entails the development of project and implementation plans by the provinces, with their respective cities. The city of eThekwini (Durban) has gone beyond the initiation phase and has developed a project plan with an implementation plan.

One of the milestones achieved by the city of eThekwini (Durban) is the establishment of an integrated Fusion Centre, which was launched on 20 November 2020. The other cities are expected to finalise their project plans with implementation plans, in the 2021/2022 financial year. This strategy is being rolled out with the District Development Model, in respect of planning and budgeting for the project.

The objectives of the Safer Cities Project (strategy) are:
A country free of crime and violence.

People feeling safe, within the city or district precinct.

Increased economic growth of the city.

Integrated functional governance system.

Public confidence and trust in the governance of the city/district.

What are the reasons that the Sun City Satellite Police Station in Moses Kotane Local Municipality is closed?

Reply:

The number of South African Police Service (SAPS) members at the Sun City Police Station, was reduced by seven members during the last year, influencing the availability of members to operate the Satellite Police Station, on a full-time basis.

The premises, which was used for the Sun City Police Station, was a small office, which was lent to the SAP6 by the tribal council of Mabeskraal. With the outbreak of COVID-19 the office did not meet the standards of the COVID-19 protocols, e.g. social distancing, etc. for the protection of the community and SAPS members.

As a result of the abovementioned situation, the Sun City Police Station now makes use of a mobile Community Service Centre that visits the affected community, two to three times a week, to ensure that the services rendered by the previous “Satellite Office" are maintained.

A new Police Station for Mabeskraal is currently in the final stages of completion, after which the community will be able to receive permanent police services.

Whether any actions will be taken against the organisers and participants of the Economic Freedom Fighters’ recent mass gathering on 20 November 2020 at the Brackenfell High School, where the numbers, firstly, exceeded the number allowed by a court order that approved the march and secondly clearly far exceeded the limit of 500 persons allowed in terms of the Disaster Management Act, Act 57 of 2002, and Regulations relating to COVID-19 and, secondly, where the participants clearly also did not adhere to the minimum social distancing and wearing of masks as required; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details;

Reply:

Yes, a case docket was opened and is being investigated. The case relates to the various contraventions of the Regulations of Gathering Act, 1993 (Act No. 205 of 1993). These contraventions include the failure to comply with conditions imposed, in respect of the gathering, as well as failures to comply with instructions and orders of the South African Police Service (SAPS).

A total of eight persons were arrested for public violence, in respect of incidents of violence that occurred on that day.

With regard to the failure to comply with the Regulations, in terms of the Disaster Management Act, 2002 (Act No. 57 of 2002), it is important to note that at the time of the march the Regulations, applicable to Alert Level 1 had to be complied with, in terms of Regulation 69, read with Regulation 80. The failure to comply with the provisions relating to gatherings were not criminalised and the failure to comply with the provisions, relating to the wearing of masks and social distancing were not criminal offences for which police could have arrested the perpetrators. The only obligation on law enforcement officers that applied at the time, was to disperse gatherings that took place in contravention of the Regulations. The SAPS did disperse the gathering.

(2) A case docket, Brackenfell CAS 237/11/2020, was opened, in terms of Section 18(2)(b) of the Riotous Assemblies Act, 1956 (Act No. 17 of 1956). This case relates to one of the persons, who incited violence on the day of the march. No case docket, in terms of the latter Section was opened against the organisers of the gathering and the reason for this is the fact that the conduct of the conveners are already the subject of an investigation, in terms of Brackenfell CAS 236/11/2020. The incidents of violence is also the subject of the public violence case dockets, which are being investigated.

(3)The Minister will decide whether he will make a statement on the matter.
