The positions left vacant by members of the Namakwa Cluster Community Policing Forum (CPF), who were elected to the provincial board in Upington in September 2017, have been filled.

This was done at the annual general meeting (AGM) of the cluster, which was held at the Okiep Country Hotel in Springbok on 17 March.

The new board members, mostly women, were unanimously elected by the 23 CPF structures in the cluster.

The meeting was conducted under the watchful eye of T-Man Tafel, public relations officer of the Northern Cape CPF board, Mary-ann Matthys, treasurer and Christine Cloete, deputy secretary.

According to Brig. Mohale Ramatseba, the meeting was also attended by Theresa Hendrieka Cloete (76), affectionately known as Mama T, and community members.

Cloete is applauded for having been part of the CPF structure since the early years of the democratic government, and still participating in CPF activities in her hometown, Springbok, which includes patrolling her neighbourhood with the police.

In his closing remarks, Tafel, who was also the programme director, did not mince his words.

He spoke strongly about what was expected of the incoming committee and members of the CPF in general.

“We must lead by example and defend our police officials with all our might. Our role is to mediate between the community and the police and let them do their work without any interfe­rence,” said Tafel.

The new members of the forum were congratulated by Lt. Gen. Risimati Shivuri, police commissioner of the Northern Cape.
