The simultaneous election of community policing forums (CPFs) in all clusters in the Northern Cape was reported to have been a huge success. The elections took place on Sunday, 30 July, in all five districts of the province.

The cluster CPF elections were held at Pixley ka Seme (De Aar), Francis Baard (Kimberley), Namakwa (Springbok), ZF Mcgawu (Upington) and John Taolo Gaetsewe (Kuruman) and were conducted by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in the Northern Cape.

According to Brig. Mohale Ramatseba, the provincial commissioner of the Northern Cape, Lt.Gen. Risimati Peter Shivuri deployed senior mana-gers in the province to oversee the election processes.

Provincial commissioners and deputies for management intervention in different clusters in the province were monitoring all election points.

Giving a message of support at the Pixley ka Seme cluster, the deputy provincial commissioner responsible for management intervention, Maj.Gen. Jeanette Fourie, pointed out that in terms of the South African Police Service Act, the CPF is the only legal consultative forum in which members of the public and businesses can raise their policing concerns.

The public relations officer of the provincial board, Stoffel Tafel, gave the newly elected members the do’s and don’ts in terms of the proper functioning of the CPFs.

He urged them to intensify mobilisation of the community to assist the police in the fight against crime.
