IFP CONDEMNS CELE FOR FAILING TO PROTECT WHISTLE BLOWERS

The Inkata Freedom Party (IFP) says it is gravely concerned with the failure to provide protection to witnesses and whistle blowers from the Police Minister Bheki Cele.

The party’s Blessed Gwala, says, the failure of Police Minister and the SAPS to provide protection to witnesses and whistle-blowers on both corruption and political killings in KwaZulu-Natal is grossly careless and intentional.

Gwala says many people have lost their lives due to incompetence of officials who fail to take heed of the warnings to avoid such catastrophic results.

The latest victim to this tragic greediness is a man believed to be a witness in the murder case against Newcastle mayor Dr Ntuthuko Mahlaba who was gunned down in Newcastle on Sunday.

He says the party is calling on the government to take decisive action to address these senseless killings.
