KHAYELITSHA - Building a police station doesn’t happen overnight.
That’s the response from police to an eNCA question as to why not a single brick has been laid for a police station in Khayelitsha promised back in 2018.
The area has fallen into a pit of unhindered crime that’s getting worse by the day.
This means the nearby Harare police station has to service an area that it simply doesn’t have the staff for.
Police now say the building of the Makhaza police station will start by 2023.
Just this past weekend, the township was the scene of two horrific crimes.
