The Police Ministry and SAPS Management led by Police Minister, General Bheki Cele spent the afternoon interacting with residents of West Village in the West Rand in Gauteng.

The aim of the walk-about is to provide the police top brass an opportunity to hear residents lived experiences on the effectiveness of the South African Police Service specialised deployment to counter the illegal mining and zamazamas and associated crimes in the West Rand area.

In July, a production company shooting a music video at West Village, Krugersdorp were attacked by a group of armed men.

Eight of the victims were allegedly raped by the suspects before robbing them of their belongings. The South African Police have made arrests.
