Police Minister Nhleko and the Police Portfolio Committee are currently overseeing the recommendations of the Marikana Report. We all know if we don't demilitarise our police, it's just a matter of time before we have another massacre.

Minister Nhleko wants to set up an expert panel on police crowd control, but this panel could take a year to conclude, and according to the Police Minister it could take up to 5 years to implement the recommendations. We need to tell the Police Minister and the Portfolio Committee that Mzansi can't wait 9 years after the Marikana Massacre to demilitarise our police.

The polices own expert witnesses who already testified at the Farlam Commission of inquiry has stated the R-5 assault rifle should not be used for crowd control.

As our elected leaders, we must demand the Police Minister and Police Portfolio Committee immediately stop the use of R-5 assault rifles for crowd control.
