Police Minister to continue engagements with Westbury community
Police Minister Bheki Cele says a specialised crime unit will be deployed to troubled Westbury and that allegations of corruption in the police force in the area will be investigated.
Cele visited the area on Tuesday following several days of protests around concerns of safety and drug-related wars in the community.
The community of Westbury says the spiralling crime and gangsterism in their area is not being addressed and that the Sophiatown police station has not helped.
Cele says they will be meeting with community again next week.
Their grievances are genuine and need to be attended to. We are meeting them next week to work with them, allow them to monitor us, evaluate us and find a final solution.Bheki Cele, Police Minister
Drugs problem is not a Westbury matter, it's a national matter. Including Westbury, several people have been arrested, I am talking about the real guys in the area. Crime will continue, the only thing is that we continue pushing.Bheki Cele, Police Minister
