Vuyolwethu Zungula took to Twitter to note what he believes are the shortcomings of local law enforcement, primarily suggesting a lack of knowledge of the law.
Leader of the African Transformation Movement (ATM), Vuyolwethu Zungula took to Twitter on Thursday, 18 February 2021, to detail what he believes are the shortcomings of local law enforcement. The post comes in light of the Minister of Police, Bheki Cele coming into the spotlight for his cordial visit to former president, Jacob Zuma in Nkandla.
However, Zungula’s sentiments echo those of the critics of the South African Police Service (SAPS). Overall, Zungula cited a supposed lack of knowledge of the law as the reason. Due to the aforementioned, according to him, the SAPS will be less likely to enforce the law or easily be swayed not to for financial gain.
He also noted “anti-Black selective enforcement of the law (Blacks are met with anger and violence, Whites are met with smiles and selfies)” as one of the biggest problems. The criticism has been shared before, in relation to Cele and his department.
See the post below.
One of the biggest problems is Law Enforcement.
1. Police don’t know the law.
2. No appetite to enforce the law.
3. They are corrupt to the core.
4. Anti-black selective enforcement of the law (blacks are met with anger & violence, whites are met with smiles and selfies).
