Cele had this to say,

I’m saying that we will need five days to look at your memorandum and address your grievances but will be acting on catching the criminals.

I heard that you want a station commander since the current commander is away on sick leave, I therefore hope that when we place a permanent station commander things will become better.

Tomorrow we will have a meeting for security cluster, and I promise you that after the meeting, there will be a change that you will see in the community.

I won’t tell you what the change is gonna be, but you as the people will see that there is a change and that is after 24 hours.
