Hazyview police rise to the top

Provincial police commissioner, Lt Gen Mondli Zuma.

Hazyview police stations were among the shining stars at the SAPS Provincial Prestige Awards at Emnotweni. Members were rewarded for their hard work during the 2016/17 financial year.

“Tonight we celebrate and award outstanding performance by individual members, units or stations,” said provincial commissioner, Lt Gen Mondli Zuma in his word of welcome.

“This ceremony is intended to encourage those who may not have performed optimally. May they improve and occupy the space of excellence. We also encourage winners to keep it up,” he said.

He thanked Nicholis Funda, who heads the Missions Area Joint Operations Centre (Majoc) in Skukuza, for facilitating effective cooperation between various crime-prevention and crime-fighting stakeholders in the Kruger National Park.

He said the provincial police worked well with traditional leadership and community policing forums.

“Our common goal is the safety, security and well-being of our communities,” he added. The award ceremony’s master of ceremonies was provincial police spokesman, Brig Leonard Hlathi.

Hazyview’s detective team was honoured with a gold award as the best detective unit in the province.

The award was received by detective commander, Capt Mhlapeki Manzini. Hazyview’s public order policing squad was named the best unit in the province.

Safety and security MEC, Mr Pat Ngomane had words of wisdom for the winners. “We congratulate you. Remember that in our industry, winning is a bonus, as the main goal is ensuring safety among South Africans. Remain shining examples to your colleagues, citizens and non-citizens of the republic,” he said.
