Joburg police are taking away blankets from the homeless, so we're demanding that they are made to volunteer at the Central Methodist Church's soup kitchen, where they should hand out blankets - instead of taking them away.

Dear Wayne Minaar, JMPD Spokesperson

We are horrified to hear that some of your officers are taking away blankets from the homeless.

We don't want something so inhumane to ever happen again, though you deny these claims, they have been coming up for years, that's why we're asking that you send your officers to volunteer at the Central Methodist church's soup kitchen and hand out blankets - instead of taking them away.

    It’s inhumane, how are we to trust that the police will be the guardians, when they are the instigators?

    A measure of our society is how we treat the most vulnerable among us. Any one of us may also find ourselves there.
