The Community Safety and Transport Management department hosted a very successful march in Rustenburg on Friday, 3 February 2017.

Reclaiming the streets was the theme of the march which demonstrated the commitment of the Provincial Government, Municipalities, the Police, business sector and the communities of the Province in their concerted fight against crime.

The communities utilised the opportunity to voice out their concerns regarding the high rate of crime, drug abuse, including dissatisfaction over the manner in which police are handling reported cases. The community requested that Dr Mokgantshang Mpho Motlhabane, and the Provincial Police Commissioner, Lt Gen Baile Motswenyane, who both attended this event, to intervene in the involvement of certain police officers in acts of criminality.

“We should work together to put these criminals where they belong – in jail. It is a fact that the government alone cannot win the fight against crime, but it takes a community and the nation to build a crime-free society, a safe and secured nation.”
