DA wishes new Gauteng Provincial Police Commissioner well

Spokesperson Safety and Security

I welcome the confirmation of Lt. Gen. Lesetja Mothiba as Gauteng Provincial Police Commissioner. I hope he will bring new stability to policing in Gauteng.
In his role as acting Commissioner I have been impressed with the rapid reaction of his office to complaints about the SAPS.

However, the fact that he disallowed an oversight visit by myself to Orange Farm Police Station, before the election does not bode well for transparency in the Province and will be up for discussion between us.

I look forward to working with him to ensure that policing in the province is professional, effective and efficient.
