More police racism claims in South Africa December 18, 2006

JOHANNESBURG – Another 21 white, coloured and Indian policemen have come forward with instances of “a deliberate and orchestrated strategy” to drive them out of the SAPS.

The incidents will be put into a supplementary report on “new racism” in the police service compiled by Centurion-based civil rights initiative AfriForum, established by the trade union Solidarity.

The first report was handed to the Human Rights Commission last week.

“Various new sources from all over the country have come forward after the publication last week of AfriForum’s comprehensive report, in which the conclusion was reached that members of the police trade union, Popcru, are heading this strategy against non-black police service members.

“We will compile a supplementary report containing the new incidents as well as any others we receive before year end,” AfriForum chief executive Kallie Kriel said.

“SA can ill afford this in light of ongoing high crime levels.”

Popcru spokesman Boiki Tsedu reiterated their standpoint, made previously, that there was no campaign whatsoever.

He said Popcru called on Solidarity to “resist the temptation to make such statements”.
