Cops are given small bakkies to chase high-speed robbers while office-bound staff cruises in GTI: These claims are contained in a letter North West deputy provincial commissioner Major-General Patrick Asaneng wrote to national commissioner Khehla Sitole

This while their colleagues in the Flying Squad are forced to share a Mazda 3 and a Ford Ranger double cab to patrol the long stretches of road leading to the provincial capital, Mahikeng.

His letter claims that there are weaknesses within the police system, hampering its core function of fighting crime. “It is for this reason that the province has failed and is continuing to fail in combating stock theft, murder, theft of motor vehicles and drugs,” Asaneng wrote. Asaneng adds that Motswenyane has “consistently sidelined and ignored me in all matters relating to crime combating. Instead, she would consult, work with and talk to other deputy provincial commissioners and, worse still, to my provincial heads while I am in the office.”

This has been going on for years. Station commander drives a GTI and the police officers on patrol have to chase people down in 1600 Datsun bakkies.
