#FeesMustFall infiltrated by criminal elements - acting police commissioner

Acting national police commissioner, Lieutenant General Kgomotso Phahlane, says the police will ensure that another Marikana massacre does not happen when they maintain order during Fees Must Fall protests.

Phahlane says the police have done a good job under the circumstances, and they will continue to be on university campuses for as long as there is the need for policing.

He urges all education stakeholders to engage in finding a solution so as to avoid a 'diversion of the police from fighting crime'.

Phahlane says criminality has crippled student protests for free decolonised education.

Give police credit they have done well. We are not about disappoint the nation. Another Marikana, we are far from it.

If the facilities are not burnt and there is no stoning, the police will not be there.

Our goal is to restore order in the institutions. And we are calling to all, particularly those who are protesting, to do so peacefully.

Lieutenant General Kgomotso Phahlane, acting national police commissioner

It is so that the Fees Must Fall has been infiltrated by criminal elements. It is something that we went through and we are confident with what we have at our disposal.
