Pretoria – Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has called on white people to join the police force, saying they too have a responsibility to serve and protect South Africa.
Mbalula was speaking at the passing-out parade at the Tshwane Police Academy where thousands of police graduated.
“Out of 3499 new recruits only 12 are white. That is seriously alarming. South Africa is your home too,” he said.
He said the demographics in the police sphere leave a lot to be desired.
