Police need community tip offs not allegations to fight drug crime - SAPS

Gauteng's Police Commissioner responded on 702 to Xolani Gwala's statement that many people say police are either involved or are looking away when it comes to Rosettenville's drug crisis,

Lt Gen. Deliwe De Lange, says the community needs to report allegations directly to her, rather than make them elsewhere.

No formal complaint has been registered. I encouraged the community to report corrupt activities to me. I will interact directly with the community. I cannot rely on hearsay allegations.

Lt. Gen. Deliwe De Lange, Gauteng Police Commissioner

The community must identify the corrupt members and report them to me so I can deal with them. People must come forward to me.

Lt. Gen. Deliwe De Lange, Gauteng Police Commissioner

Call 082 820 6467 to report any police involvement in Rosettenville's drug syndicates.
