Opinion: Police credibility needs to be restored

At least 30 police firearms were stolen at a police station near Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape.

Police discovered that firearms were missing during an inspection on Tuesday.

You've got to ask yourself if they do this to a police station, where does this put you and I.

Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host

Thugs are so brazen that they have no respect whatsoever for the police.

Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host

We need 'back to basics' where police play the role they used to play in society, respectable, so that thugs are not able to do things they have done here.
