Xolani Gwala says it is unfortunate that the media briefing by the acting national police commissioner, Khomotso Phahlane, sent the message that the top cop may be involved in "intimidating people and playing a partisan role".
Phahlane briefed the media last night regarding marches against President Jacob Zuma taking place today.
He said whether or not the Save South Africa protest was legal, police would be deployed there anyway.
The police must play a policing responsibility. They must make sure property and lives are protected without sides.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
We would like to appeal to the highest level of Saps to send the correct message to the men and women in blue that a lot depend on their role in separating those who are seeking to threaten the marchers and the marchers.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
