JOHANNESBURG, In a shocking revelation, Build One South Africa (BOSA) President Mmusi Maimane has called for the resignation of South Africa’s Police Minister Bheki Cele. The call comes on the heels of a horrific day that saw 84 people murdered and over 180 women raped.
Maimane, a former leader of the opposition Democratic Alliance party, expressed outrage over the rising tide of violent crime in the country, and the apparent lack of effective measures to combat it. He pointed out that many of the perpetrators of these heinous crimes would never face the law, and that violent crime had continued to increase in the last quarter.
The BOSA President also highlighted the fact that those who are arrested often enjoy luxuries such as cellphones and continue to run criminal enterprises from inside prison walls. This is a clear indication of the failure of the justice system to deal with these criminals effectively.
Maimane’s call for the resignation of Minister Cele is a bold move, but it reflects the growing frustration of many South Africans with the government’s handling of crime. The Minister has been at the helm of the police force since 2018, and has come under increasing criticism for the failure to curb crime in the country.
Many have pointed to the lack of resources and the high levels of corruption within the police force as major obstacles to effective policing. Others have criticized the government’s policies on crime, arguing that they are too soft on criminals and fail to address the root causes of crime.
Whatever the reasons behind the rising tide of violent crime in South Africa, it is clear that urgent action is needed to address the problem. The call for Minister Cele’s resignation is a wake-up call to the government to take this issue seriously and to act decisively to protect the lives and property of all South Africans.
