Alleged Ficksburg “Rambo Squad” requires urgent investigation

The SAPS management in the Free State need to urgently investigate the antics of a so called “Rambo Squad” in the Ficksbug SAPS. It is alleged that members of the SAPS regard themselves as being above the law by assaulting and generally terrorizing members of the public and their colleagues.

Such behaviour undermines the image of the SAPS and confirms previous allegations of large scale corruption in the SAPS, specifically in the Ficksburg area. The most recent allegations strengthen the case for the fast tracking of the DA’s Free State Community Policing Bill that is currently before the legislature. This Bill will strengthen oversight and accountability over the SAPS in the province.
