DA thanks community for assisting in the recovery of stolen campaign vehicle

by Zwakele Mncwango – DA KZN Premier CandidateDA thanks community for assisting in the recovery of stolen campaign vehicle

The Democratic Alliance would like to thank members of the community for their swift action in assisting the DA in recovering the party’s branded Premier Candidate Campaign vehicle.

The vehicle was stolen on Saturday night in Morningside Durban. We immediately launched an appeal across social media platforms requesting for assistance in locating and recovering it.

The party wishes to extend its gratitude to the anonymous caller who gave us a lead as to the whereabouts of the vehicle, leading to its recovery.

We are truly grateful to South Africans who have stepped up to fight crime in all its manifestations across the country.

The DA is however concerned and disappointed by the Police’s poor response to this matter. After we reported the matter to the police and made a public appeal on social media, we received the anonymous call alerting us to its location. Despite our best efforts in notifying the police of this development, they did not act and were not on the scene when the vehicle was recovered,

It is only when I followed the lead myself that the vehicle was recovered.

The DA is disappointed by the police’s conduct, an experience too many South Africans go through when they report crime. Criminals are getting away with murder because they know that the police does not care about the welfare of the people.

This incident reinforces the DA’s plan to professionalise the police service through merit-based appointment and promotion. Police should be given adequate training and strong accountability mechanisms must be put in place. South Africa needs and honest and professional police service which keeps communities safe and restores order.

The DA is the only party that is committed building One South for All where every person feels safe and can count on a police service that reacts promptly to incidents of crime.
