Xolani Khumalo Teams Up with Joburg After Being Fired By Moja Love
Former Moja Love presenter, Xolani Khumalo, renowned for his drug-busting show ‘Sizok’thola,’ is intensifying his battle against drugs. Despite being dismissed by Moja Love last week, Khumalo is teaming up with the City of Joburg to kick off a new Tactical Unit aimed at combating crime in the metro.
Xolani Khumalo Teams Up With City of Joburg To Launch Tactical Unit to Tackle Crime
The launch, led by Dr Mgcini Tshwaku, MMC of Public Safety in the City, took place on Friday at the Moletsane Sports Complex in Soweto. The event introduced the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) Tactical Reaction Unit and the Crime Prevention and Combating Unit, both designed to support the police in addressing crime, drugs, and human trafficking.
Tshwaku, addressing the gathered crowd, emphasized the strategic nature of this move to counter the escalating high-level and emerging crimes in the municipality. The unit’s responsibilities encompass tackling domestic violence and protecting the rights of women, children, and the elderly.
Gratitude and Commitment: Xolani Khumalo’s Perspective
The unit’s focus spans a wide range of criminal threats, from cash-in-transit heists, business robberies, hijackings, and kidnappings to addressing drugs, human trafficking, and illegal mining. The overarching goal is to bolster prevention measures and enhance the capabilities of crime fighters in investigating organized crimes within the city.
Expressing gratitude to the City for initiating the effort, Khumalo voiced his satisfaction and eagerness for the unit’s activities on the streets. He affirmed their commitment to eradicating drugs, guns, illicit goods, and expired products from spaza shops.
“We are still fighting crime and it’s a good thing that the JMPD is endorsing this initiative and we will continue to work. We will eradicate drugs, guns, and illicit goods as well as the expired food from the spaza shops,” he said.
Ensuring Well-being: Tshwaku Stresses Fair Compensation
However, Tshwaku stressed the importance for members of the newly launched unit to be taken care of and be well paid, to avoid discouragement and corruption.
He urged the leadership of the JMPD to pay the new officers well, stating that there should not be excuses when it comes to that part.
