No to police brutality-EFF

Jane Furse

On Monday during the morning, the Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) in Sekhukhune area embarked on picketing against police brutality from Jane furse crossing to Jane furse police station.

Red beret members came in numbers to support the call from the national structure. 

According to the regional chairperson of the party, Moleke Senong picketing went well with the members observing and complying with Covid-19 restrictions. Senong said police members should treat poor masses with dignity they deserve.

He said the call on picketing against police brutality was not a threat to police but to demonstrate against inhuman activities done by some of the police.

“We are happy because our picketing went well and the community supported it. We are warning the police to stop harassing defenceless community. They should never use this pandemic period to manhandle the community. However we agree that the police must deal with anarchists lawfully,” said regional chairperson of the red beret.   

“Justice must be done to Khoza’s family in Alexandra, Andries Tatane, George Floyd and to all victims of gender based violence across the country,” he said.

He said in the EFF has no room for perpetrators who use this period to abuse women and children.

Responding to query on how his party is dealing with corrupt councillor who allegedly stole food parcels in the district he said his party is working tirelessly to bring accused officials to the book.

“As we speak people have been awarded tenders of PPEs without proper procument procedures by various municipalities in the district unlawfully. But we are watching them and we will deal with them decisively,” said Senong.

Addressing other challenge faces by the staff members at Jane Furse hospital.

He said: “I received numerous complaints from staff members in Jane Furse hospital”

Senong said previously there were cleaners’ posts at hospital and now people have been interviewed and candidates were shortlisted but none of the shortlisted candidates are not from Sekhukhune which is worrying because everyone can clean.

“We will intervene and we hope that the management would comply,” he said.
