Not all police stations have been stocked with rape kits, says DA
The Democratic Alliance (DA) says Minister Bheki Cele has missed his own deadline to ensure stations would have rape kits by 14 October.
The party says several police stations across the country still do not have rape kits in stock - the discovery comes after a visit by its public representatives to a number of police stations over the past two days.
DA shadow police minister Andrew Whitfield says they are concerned that the situation has not improved as the minister promised and that he is found wanting.
We still have police stations without these vital resources to ensure that we are able to successfully prosecute rapists.Andrew Whitfield, DA shadow police minister
Whitfield says the party has written to the minister to establish what the facts are.
The tender was awarded in the first two weeks of August which was a tremendous victory and we had hoped that the distribution of the rape kits would happen by the 14th of October, that deadline came and went.Andrew Whitfield, DA shadow police minister
