DURBAN – Police Minister Bheki Cele is unhappy that some police stations in Durban have not set up offices to handle cases of gender-based violence (GBV).

Cele and senior police officers surprised officers at Durban Central and Spot Police Stations, which were two of the busiest stations in Durban.

Provincial Commissioner Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi and Cele wanted to see and hear some of the challenges the men and women in blue face in carrying out their work.

He said he was concerned that the two police stations did not have a specific GBV office to handle cases.

“I have to say one thing that I’m not happy with with both stations, they don’t seem to be ready with the gender based violence desk that we promised to put in place on each station by the end of the month,” Cele said.

The minister said he believed police stations should focus on setting up these GBV desks.
