The police civilian secretariat has gazetted new draft regulations for public comment. The aim is to establish a new council and a host of new functions for the minister of police to protect South Africa’s critical infrastructure. Independent Policing Union of South Africa general secretary Mpho Kwinika elaborates.
Damage and theft of critical infrastructure is costing the economy billions of rand and slowing down growth. In an effort to stop the criminal acts, four of the largest state-owned entities have created a forum to address the problems. Newzroom Afrika business reporter Kopano Gumbi filed the story.
