THE NORTHERN Cape SAPS has announced that comprehensive preparations are in place to ensure a peaceful and secure environment for the upcoming 2024 State of the Province address (Sopa).

SAPS stated that all critical security and law enforcement agencies are on high alert, ready to execute their respective responsibilities.

Northern Cape Premier Dr Zamani Saul is slated to deliver the Sopa on Thursday, February 29, at the Mittah Seperepere Convention Centre in Kimberley. This annual address serves as a crucial platform for outlining the Province’s achievements, challenges, and future plans.

Provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Mashay Gamiledien said that all role-players are ready to execute their various responsibilities.

“All law enforcement agencies, led by the SAPS, have mobilised resources to heighten police visibility, with the aim of preventing and combating any form of opportunistic crimes before, during and post the planned address. Any lawlessness and any form of criminality will be dealt with accordingly,” said Gamiledien.

To facilitate the smooth flow of events, Gamiledien advised the public to take note that West Circular Road, leading to the Mittah Seperepere Convention Centre, will be closed to traffic from 9am until 11am due to the procession.

“The public is advised to make use of alternative routes.”

Residents are urged to co-operate and contribute to a successful and incident-free event.
