The passion of the new Minister of Police Fikile Mbalula for members of the police is publically laudable, and it is good that he encouraged them to fight fire with fire. “This is the only way the country’s criminals will get the message that their crimes will stop,” said Henry Geldenhuys, deputy president of TAU SA and chairman of the Security Committee.

“As we all sympathize with the fact that police officers are killed every day, we want to show the minister that there are more farmers killed per capita of the population, in South Africa. Also, to be a farmer in the country, according to those statistics is even more dangerous than being a police officer.”

“ So we want to ask the minister for the farming community and the police to work together for support, mutual benefit and safety, and that farm attackers will similarly be fought with fire if they discharge fire,” says. Geldenhuys.
