Well, as a South African Police, National Commissioner and I, we are working hard to work with the provinces and local governments. The premier that we have been very closely with on these matters is the premier Gauteng Province, but I am glad to announce that yesterday, this Minister speaking met with the Premier of Western Cape Province and we have agreed how we are going to work together in combating crime going forward. I thought that DA people will clap the hands. [Appluase.]
The people that are murdered in South Africa 70% of them are murdered over the weekend and their murder starting on Thursday evening to Sunday morning, early hours, five
or three in the morning, so which means your deployment need to speak to that. One thing that we are speaking with premiers is to say to them they must ask their liquor boards to respect the people of townships especially, because these taverns and shebeens, we don't find them in Bishops Court, you don't find them in Camps Bay, and you will find them in Gugulethu and Khayelitsha and all that. There, they must be respect of law, for instance you can't have a license that closes at four in the morning and those are granted by liquor boards, we are asking premiers to say to the people, please give the proper thing.
If it is there illegal, at least it closes at 12 o'clock and all that, which is the first one. We are saying to South African Police be very hard to those that are selling liquor illegal, even if they have certificates and their licenses, for instance Commissioner and myself we went to one shebeen in Gugulethu, it was 02:35 in the morning, when we came there, they were still operating and everybody was dancing, the license must be closing at 02:00. Using your eyes, you can see that people that are here are 14 years, are 16 years and 17 years, the law in
South Africa is very clear, even if is legal but if breaks law, hit it hard. So we are not going to be nice with shebeens because many people die around shebeens, we are going to very hard on them, and please they must respect the law.
