Inbox me,” minister launches social media complaint platform

Those who will have problems with service delivery issues at various police stations across the country will now report to the minister directly.

Police minister Fikile Mbalula has launched a social media campaign where the public will report service delivery issues.

Called #MyPoliceStation, the platform to report bad cops and stations that don’t do their work has began.

Razzmatazz launched the campaign this week Wednesday.

He said it will strengthen the relationship between himself and the public.

“This campaign has been motivated by many cases reported to me,” Mbalula said.

“Especially the case of Constable LC Phaswane of the Sandton police station who used state resources to deal with her personal issues while ignoring our people who came for service.

“I can confirm that disciplinary processes have been initiated and this must serve as a warning to other rotten potatoes,” he said.

Mbalula ordered all SAPS bosses in different provinces to respond to these complaints and take them seriously.

“We will not tolerate rogue elements within our ranks, we must name and shame them,” he said.

“This campaign will go a long way to strengthen partnership between Police and our people.

“People must report genuine cases, as scarce resources will be used to resolve these complaints, therefore people must not abuse this campaign by reporting false or hoax cases,” he warned.
