Regarding: CONDUCT OF SOUTH AFRICAN POLICE OFFICIAL
It has come to the attention of Front National that a serving police officer, one Mveleli Mogolwane Gwabeni of East London, used the social media to incite the murder of members of the farming community in South Africa.
Gwabeni declares, on his personal Facebook profile, that he graduated as a Police officer in December of 2017 at Bisho and is currently serving in East London. In a posting on Facebook Gwabeni stated: “…we must continue to kill more of their farmers…”
Evidence of that is attached to this communication.
Whether this can be regarded as an admission of Police complicity in the ever escalating crisis of attacks and brutal murders of the South African farming community, can be debated. What is absolutely clear beyond dispute is the fact that a serving police officer openly and publicly incites members of the public to commit the crime of murder.
In light of such statements it is hardly surprising that the general public in South Africa is gradually losing confidence in the South African Police Service. How can they trust the police to protect them if a police officer incites other people to murder members of the public?
Consequently, in the interest of the farming community in South Africa, Front National herewith requests the Minister and the Provincial Commissioner to:
1) Instruct an immediately inquiry into the actions of Gwabeni to assess his suitability to serve as an officer of the SAPS
2) To suspend Gwabeni from active duty with immediate effect and ensure that he has no access to a service firearm
3) To proceed with disciplinary AND criminal charges against Gwabeni.
We request that both the offices of the Minister and the Provincial Commissioner of Police in the Eastern Cape provide us with feedback on this matter.
As South Africa is a member country of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol), we also herewith inform the General Secretariat of Interpol of this particular incident and would like to convey to them our immense concern regarding the impact which such actions, if not addressed, can have on the already volatile situation regarding crime and race relations in South Africa.
In anticipation of your early response
