The Gauteng Department of Community Safety has assured voters that it will be ready come August the 3rd.
MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane has announced that over 3000 law enforcement officers are being deployed to retain stability during elections.
With the recent escalation of violence, the department has come out to assure voters that their safety remains a priority.
Johannesburg and Tshwane top the list of hotspots, where strict security measures will be enforced.
Meanwhile, in the Free State, the MEC for police, roads and transport, has also indicated the province’s readiness for the elections.
With almost two weeks before elections, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) says it is happy with the current safety and security plans.
