Ten fines were issued during a multi-disciplinary operation that was conducted on the N12 by SAPS members of Kimberley, Galeshewe and Kagisho and Roodepan, SAPS Vehicle Crime Investigation Unit, the Northern Cape Liquor Board, Government Communication (GCIS) Home Affairs and the SANDF on Thursday August 26 at about 9.30am.

Police spokesperson Captain Tessa Jansen said fines were issued to the amount of R6 500 for five unlicensed vehicles, four motorists who were driving without a driver’s licence and for one vehicle where the rear lights were not working.

“One trailer was impounded after it appeared to have been tampered with. An inquiry was opened for further investigation.”

She added that 261 motor vehicles were stopped and searched while 476 persons were searched.

“Pamphlets were distributed on domestic violence, sexual offences, elderly abuse, child abuse, human trafficking missing persons, alcohol and drug abuse and general hints on crime prevention.”

Jansen stated that 93 vehicles and 147 people were stopped and searched during a roadblock that was held on the way to Riverton.

“A door to door awareness campaign was also conducted in Riverton where the community were encouraged to speak out on domestic violence, sexual offences; elderly abuse and child abuse.”

She said the joint parade involved in “Operation Basadi” was addressed by Brigadier Charlotte Makgari from the Frances Baard district office who encouraged women not to be satisfied with blending into the background but to take charge as strong individuals.

“The parade was also addressed by the deputy provincial commissioner of crime detection, Major-General Koliswa Otola who encouraged the women to believe in themselves and praise themselves because it will not be easily found that someone else does it for you. She encouraged the women to take the lead, work hard and to study hard in order for them to progress in their careers.”
