Police on high alert ahead of Didiza's official introduction

Acting National Police Commissioner, Kgomotso Phahlane, says police officers are on high alert ahead of the official introduction of Thoko Didiza as City of Tshwane's mayoral candidate for the 2016 municipal elections.

Various community members in Mamelodi, Atteridgeville and Ga-Rankuwa protested against the announcement by the African National Congress (ANC) on Sunday, resulting in buses being burned and shops being looted.

702's John Robbie spoke to him regarding their efforts to stop the violence of #TshwaneUnrest.

Listen to the interview below:

We are getting back to normality, the communities are cooperating with us. As you know, this is not a broader community issue... The police remain on the ground.

Kgomotso Phahlane, Acting National Police Commissioner

Two people were shot dead on Tuesday evening in Mamelodi in what is suspected to be related to the protests which began on Sunday.

They were found dead in the shop which was being looted, that is not a shooting by police, it is amongst themselves... There was also a third one, which is not related to the violence as well.

Kgomotso Phahlane, Acting National Police Commissioner

What I would like to appeal to the community of Tshwane for is that we must work together to get the situation under control.
