THE PROVINCIAL commissioner of the SAPS in the Northern Cape, Lieutenant-General Koliswa Otola, and the acting deputy provincial commissioner for corporate services, Major-General Thabo Mphuthi, handed over medical equipment, care packs and reading material to patients in the oncology department at Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe Hospital (RMSH) in Kimberley on Tuesday.

The donations are the proceeds of a 10-kilometre “pink and blue” fun walk that was held in Kimberley in November last year in aid of cancer awareness.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Sergio Kock said the walk was hosted in conjunction with the SAPS Women’s Network, Men for Change, the Department of Health, the Community Policing Forum, the Department of Transport Safety and Liaison, the Department of Correctional Services, the SANDF, and the provincial SAPS management, provincial components and stations within the greater Kimberley area.

“Lieutenant-General Otola commended the hospital for the sterling job they are doing serving the community,” said Kock.

“The acting CEO of RMSH, Dr Esme Olivier, praised the SAPS and other relevant stakeholders for their generosity.”

Kock added that the SAPS Women’s Network distributed treats to patients and staff at the oncology ward.
