Police minister Bheki Cele, who on Tuesday visited Durban’s Inanda township to celebrate Freedom Day, assured the community that police are not turning a blind eye to the rape scourge in the area

The Inanda area currently has the highest number of rape cases reported in the country.

Cele, who was speaking at the KwaZulu-Natal’s provincial Freedom Day celebration event at the Ohlange High School, said police are treating the issue of rape crimes in the area as a priority. “However, we need co-operation from the community if we are to succeed.”
