Police promise incident free election

Law enforcement personnel will be on high alert during Wednesday’s polls -with increased personnel especially in the more than 200 hotspots identified by the South African Police Service.
Limpopo has the highest number of hotspots standing at 56, followed by KwaZulu-Natal at 40 and Gauteng at 36.
President Jacob Zuma has also authorized the deployment of more than 2 000 members of the defence force across the country.
They will also be deployed to trouble torn Vuwani to provide logistical support following a three months shut down of services by residents protesting against their inclusion into a new municipality in Limpopo.
Acting Police Commissioner Kgomotso Phahlane says they are ready to deliver an incident free election.
Phahlane says: “South Africans must go and vote. Its a democratic right and that must not be taken from them. Be assured SAPS is there to deliver a safe and secure 2016 local government election.”
