Disfunctional police

The IFP will demand answers as to why there is a
shortage of specialised fingerprint ink in Eastern Cape
police stations, when the Portfolio Committee on
Police meets again.
IFP Spokesperson on Police, Mr Velaphi Ndlovu MP,
said; "It is disturbing to learn that a suspect was
released in Port Alfred due to the shortage of
fingerprint ink, thus exposing the community to
potentially dangerous criminals. Even more
concerning are reports that the relevant authorities
have done nothing about this situation. This indicates
a lack of leadership in a dysfunctional police service."
Ndlovu continued, "The IFP is deeply concerned about
the lack of resolution to solve this problem and this
certainly will discourage honourable policemen and
women from performing their duties. This matter
must be dealt with immediately."
The IFP calls on the Minister of Police to urgently
intervene in order to ensure that community
members feel safe at all times and that justice is
served. Furthermore, the Eastern Cape Provincial
Commissioner must account to Parliament’s portfolio
committee on Police, as a matter of urgency, as to
why there is a fingerprint ink shortage," Ndlovu
concluded.

Ndlovu, MP, 083 625 0803

Phendulani Biyase, 073 024 5675
