PRETORIA, Police Deputy Minister Bongani Mkongi says he does not regret accusing foreigners of economic sabotage against South Africans. He made that statement which angered the South African Human Rights Commission, during his recent visit to Hillbrow.
Mkongi is in the Northern Cape for his two day engagement with communities and stakeholders.”I don’t regret saying that and I’m in the Northern Cape we should focus on that,” he says.
The Deputy Minister went on to say that they acknowledge concerns raised by communities throughout the province, including shortage of police officers.
He says all such challenges will be addressed within two years, provided tax payers foot the bill to address the challenge of crime.
“They can’t protect because they do not have their own vehicles, they cannot afford to buy houses, they’re are falling in between the cracks. So South Africans, the tax payer must pay in the fight against crime, if you we want to destroy crime, we must increase their salaries.”
