New community safety MEC Albert Fritz says he wants to see the silo mentality in the Western Cape eradicated.

Western Cape Premier Alan Winde last week announced Albert Fritz as the new community safety MEC.

Speaking to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies, Fritz says he is walking into the post not only to do oversight but to alter behaviour in dealing with socio-economic problems faced by communities.

He says his eight years experience in the Department of Social Development has shown that people enter a life of crime due to lack of jobs and opportunities.
