“Members of the community are encouraged not to withdraw cases. A team of investigators is established to work tirelessly to bring the perpetrators to book, only to find that the complainant does not want to continue with the case. This becomes a wasteful exercise on severely limited resources allocated to the police.”

“We urge community members to be patient and give us a chance to serve them and allow the law to take its course,” said Sergeant Lindile Moloi, spokesperson for Brackendowns SAPS.
