Gauteng MEC for community safety Faith Mazibuko revealed this in a written response to a question posed by DA MPL Michael Shackleton.

More than half of the 231 flying squad vehicles in Gauteng are parked at police garages and private workshops, community safety MEC Faith Mazibuko has revealed.

Most of the vehicles in workshops, said Mazibuko, had been in for longer than three months and she had no idea when they would be fully repaired.“There is no specific time frame for the finalisation of [fixing] the vehicles [because] the vehicles are booked at different SAPS garages throughout the province [and] many of the vehicles are outsourced to private facilities,” said Mazibuko.

“Although it negatively impacts on police visibility, crime hotspot areas and highways are prioritised [with metro police reinforcement] to ensure high visibility in these areas.”The livelihoods of so many Gauteng residents could have been saved if these vehicles were in functional condition.

Michael Shackleton, DA MPL The DA believed that 124 flying squad vehicles off the road was far too many, especially after the recent looting and public violence that engulfed the province.“The DA in Gauteng is calling on MEC for community safety Faith Mazibuko to urgently liaise with police minister Bheki Cele to ensure that the 124 Gauteng SAPS flying squad vehicles that are non-functional are immediately attended to and brought back to their respective flying squad base to prevent and fight crime in the province,” said Shackleton. headtopics.com

“These vehicles could have been used during the recent incidents of violence and looting to ensure maximum police visibility and to prevent such incidents from happening. The livelihoods of so many Gauteng residents could have been saved if these vehicles were in functional condition.”

Mazibuko disagreed, however, saying there was no scientific evidence that the non-operational vehicles would have made any difference, as “it is unknown whether additional vehicles may have impacted on crime levels”.Shackleton did not buy Mazibuko's excuse, insisting that the shortage of flying squad vehicles “has also negatively impacted the work of the police in crime hotspots areas, particularly during this recent unrest, where they could have assisted in preventing the people from looting and damaging malls and shops”.
