Introductory remarks by the National Commissioner handing over of a house to the Cele family, Zibuse Village, Hammarsdale



27 January 2018; KwaZulu Natal

This house was built as an initiative by the South African Police Service as we were touched by the challenges faced by the Cele siblings who lost both their parents, between 2009 and 2017. This is a child-headed family that did not have a safe and secure place to call home. Today we are going to hand over this house, as part of our activities here in KwaZulu-Natal as we celebrate the achievements of our employees. Minister I believe that this initiative shows that we are not only concerned with fighting crime, we are also equally concerned about our communities’ vulnerable groups and mitigating social factors that could see them being victims of crime.

I will now call the Minister of Police, Mr Fikile Mbalula to come and officially hand over this house to the Cele siblings.
