300 cars handed to police

Over 300 new cars were handed to Gauteng police today by National Police Commissioner General Bheki Cele.

“These cars must be taken care of ...  these cars belong to the people of South Africa,” Cele said at the handing over in Hillbrow, Johannesburg.

“You have the resources... South Africa must get smaller for criminals every day,” he said, addressing police officers.

This was the third lot of vehicles to be handed to Gauteng, which Cele said contributed to half of South Africa’s crime statistics.
