Disgruntled JMPD trainees and new graduates speak out against ill-treatment by Public Safety MMC Mally Mokoena
SAfm — Hundreds JMPD trainees are disgruntled with the ANC-led government in Joburg and are speaking out against the alleged continued ill-treatment by Public Safety MMC Mally Mokoena. This is after they were allegedly recalled by the MMC stating that they are poorly trained and have been back to the police academy to be retrained. Some see this as the consequence of the ANCs on-going strategy to purge the JMPD of all appointments made during the DA government, replacing them with politically-aligned comrades. These new recruits had been enlisted during the DA's tenure in government and were due to conclude training at the end of 2019. We spoke one of the disgruntled JMPD trainees and one of the new graduates, who asked to remain anonymous. We also spoke to Superintendent Wayne Minnaar, Spokesperson for the Johannesburg Metro Police.
