Minister of Police Statement at OR TAMBO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT Media Briefing !!

This morning I met with the Minister of State Security, Mr David Mahlobo,
the Executive Mayor of Ekurhuleni, Mr Mzwandile Masina, the MEC of
Community Safety, Ms Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane, the top management of
the Police as well as the leadership of Airports Company South Africa
(ACSA) which included the CEO of ACSA, Mr Bongani Maseko, the GM
of O.R. Tambo International Airport, Ms Bongiwe Pityi and ACSA’s Group
Manager for Security, Mr Jason Tshabalala. This meeting was informed
both by the ongoing concern around safety and security and the strategic
nature of O.R. Tambo International Airport, as one of the country’s
national key points.

O.R. Tambo International Airport is the biggest and the busiest airport in
South Africa. O.R. Tambo International Airport is not only a national key
point, but also plays a very strategic role in our country, last year alone,
approximately 21 million passengers passed through the airport, on this
basis, it remains the gateway to Africa as well as opens the door to millions
of international guests visiting our country annually. Therefore its security
is of paramount importance to the South African Police Service, as well
as the country as a whole.

As the Police Minister, on 6 June 2017, I visited O.R. Tambo International
Airport and met with Airport Management, to assess the state of security,
and I must admit that I was shocked by the low level of policing and police
visibility at the airport. I shared this concern with our parliamentarians in
Parliament that same day, and assured them that appropriate steps will
be taken to correct the situation.

As part of this morning’s meeting, we received a briefing from Airport
Management on the nature of crimes being committed at the airport, like
the R20m armed robbery where criminals impersonated police officers.
Another example, is a cash in transit that occurred on the 01st of April
where cash in transit was blown up with explosives on the R24 highway.
On the 15th May, a high-jacking and murder took place at the airport,
whereas on the 01st of July there was a Swissport warehouse armed
robbery. As we were about to receive the briefing this morning, an armed
robbery of a truck containing valuable goods coming from the airport was
hijacked.

We have identified the nature of the challenges that we need to respond
to at O.R. Tambo International Airport, with regards to the crime being
committed there. Simply put, part of the challenge is corruption and
collusion where police officers are in cahoots with criminals. An obvious
lack of police command and control is highly concerning and without it,
the ability to effectively manage deployed personnel at the airport will
remain a major challenge. We were further informed on the non-
implementation of policing measures put in place.

There are further challenges with regards to the non-existence of tactical crime intelligence. Furthermore we discussed an inherent lack of effective prosecution. We
need to revisit the steps put in place over the 2010 Soccer World Cup
period. There is a collective agreement that, we need to explore the 2010
Soccer World Cup strategy which was both efficient and effective.

We further discussed and reached agreement that it is critical to ensure
that as part of the long term, sustainable security plan, all people that work
at the airport need to be effectively vetted, so that we have a greater
appreciation of who is working and/or based at the airport.

On this basis, we jointly agreed that a more senior police officer with the
rank of Major General needs to be deployed to the airport and lead its
policing operation. The Major General will be based at the airport. As part
of this meeting, we have been reassured by the Executive Mayor of
Ekurhuleni Municipality, Mr Mzwandile Masina, that the city of Ekurhuleni
will deploy more EMPD officers to assist in curbing crime at O.R. Tambo
International Airport.

As part of the next steps, we have agreed to the following: There will be a
joint deployment to the airport that will include crime intelligence, the
Hawks, and detectives. This team will operate out of an operations room
where crime will be monitored on a daily basis at the airport and a report
will be sent to me on a weekly basis, on the progress being made in this
regard. It is also important to look at the nature of the security architecture
of South Africa and our ports of entry in particular.

Essentially what we are
saying is that criminals must not find it easy to commit crime in South
Africa. To indicate our seriousness, next Friday, 21 July 2017, we will
regroup here at the airport in order to flesh out a masterplan for security
with all government agencies within the security cluster.

Based on today’s meeting which involved all key stakeholders on the way
forward, we have a better appreciation of the nature of challenges we face
and we can assure South Africans that good, solid police men and women
are up to the task. As we speak, the leadership of SAPS is strengthening
the plan of fighting crime at O.R. Tambo International Airport.

In a very short space of time we will brief South Africans on the victories that we
would have achieved. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the
leadership of Airports Company South Africa (ACSA), for consistently
bringing their concerns to me and my office. As expressed as part of this
meeting, Airports Company South Africa’s role is to manage and develop
airports. This is what they do best and must continue to focus on as part
of their mandate. Ours as the SAPS, is to ensure that we keep this national
key point safe for all passengers and visitors to the airport and to our
country.

We therefore want to be clear in sending a strong message to criminals
and those corrupt police officials who are in cahoots with criminals, that
your days are numbered. We will not tolerate a state of lawlessness where
criminals do as they please in our country. We therefore want to assure
South Africans and our international guests that their safety is our number
priority as the South African Police Service.

I thank you.

Flights to Port Elizabeth with British Airways

Known as “The Friendly City”, Port Elizabeth stretches for 16km along the Algoa Bay and is considered the water sports capital of South Africa – perfect for indulging in water sports and outdoor activities like surfing, jet-skiing and exploring some of the most beautiful blue flag beaches South Africa.

Humewood beach is recognised as South Africa’s oldest blue flag beach, an award given to impeccably clean beaches that are friendly to the environment, making this an ideal destination for families looking for a beach holiday in South Africa.

Before you go

We recommend that you check the Foreign and Commonwealth office website to help stay safe overseas and to make informed decisions about travelling abroad. You should only travel if you are fit to travel and able to participate in all part of the services that you have booked to undertake.

You will need to comply with the health requirements of your destination, as well as prove that you have any necessary vaccinations for your travel arrangements. Consult your doctor about any health requirements for your destination beforehand and visit IATA Travel Centre to find out what vaccinations you’ll need.

Should you need to take any medication with you, check before travel that you are allowed to take it into the country you are visiting. Some countries do not permit certain medicines even though they may be widely accepted in your own country. Take any paperwork or authorisation from your doctor that may be required.

Millions of people travel the world each year and enjoy trouble free trips but crimes against people and property are a fact of life. It makes sense to take the same responsibility for your own safety abroad as you would do at home.

Here are some tips you may find useful:

Use credit cards where possible to avoid carrying excessive amounts of cash or travellers cheques.
Use the hotel’s safety deposit box if there is one.
Lock your door even when you’re inside your room, but when you leave make sure you close and lock your windows, doors and balconies.
Don’t walk around poorly lit areas and beaches after dark and don’t feel embarrassed about crossing the road if you feel uneasy about someone in the street.
Try to use only registered or official taxis, so ask the hotel for guidance.
Drink responsibly.

Book Now

A refreshment stop will take place in Kleinmond before we make our way to Hermanus, to the Heart of Abalone. After a short explanation on Abalone, otherwise known as perlemoen in SA , you will boot up and take a walking tour to see abalone up close in their natural and farmed environment.. This is followed by an optional abalone tasting. Lunch will follow at Harbour Rock, overlooking the Hermanus new harbour before we board the whale watching cruise in Walker Bay, Hermanus. The cruise will take approximately an 2 – 2½ hour’s. We will then travel back to Cape Town via the N2 over Sir Lowry’s Pass, passing the historical towns of Elgin and Grabouw.

The Whale and Abalone Tour starts at 08h00 when you are picked up from your city hotel in a 2016 Ford Tourneo minibus that seats 7 guests. Ian, the owner operator will be your driver/guide for the day. We head out of the city along the N2 and take the beautiful scenic route along Clarence Drive to Stoney Point at Betty’s Bay. Here at you will see one of the only two land based African penguin breeding colonies, with the other being Boulders Beach on the opposite side of False Bay. The abandoned Whaling Station site where 300 whales were once killed annually for their oil (from 1917 – 1930) now gives birth to new life as penguins naturally selected breeding ground. After experiencing the sighting of African penguins, we go to Kleinmond for a refreshing cup of coffee or tea. A half an hours drive later we arrive in Hermanus, arguably the best land-based whale watching location in the world.

We visit Heart of Abalone where we will be provided the opportunity to see how Abagold, a working abalone farm operates. This rock-clinging sea snail is traditionally known for their great taste. Also known by it’s Afrikaans name “perlemoen” referring to it’s mother-of-pearl shell. Learn about the life cycle of this interesting sea snail, the challenges of the farming process, as well as the culture and history of this unique molluscs for South Africans and Chinese. Once the farm walk through is completed, we remove our boots that we were provided with and can now partake in the tasting of this delicasy. The tasting is for your own account and you will be spoilt with a delicious presentation of 3 ways in which abalone can be prepared. After this rare taster we head off to Harbour Rock restaurant.

The beauty of Harbour Rock restaurant is that it is situated on a cliff and overlooks Hermanus harbour from where we will embark on our whale watching cruise. The extensive highly acclaimed menu will for sure satisfy your taste buds. From mussels to mutton, you will be spoilt for choice. Acclaimed by locals and tourists alike, this is a restaurant that draws people back to Hermanus time and again.

The full-day tour departs from your centrally located downtown Cape Town, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, or Atlantic Seaboard (Mouille Point, Sea Point, Bantry Bay, Clifton and Camps Bay) hotel accommodation around 9am.

You’ll first be driven in an air-conditioned minivan to the Company Gardens downtown. There, you’ll embark on a walk toward the city center, strolling past the National Library, Cape Town Parliament, and St. George’s Cathedral. You’ll continue through the heart of the old city where you will find some of Cape Town’s oldest and most prestigious galleries, antique shops, and auction houses, and visit The Cape Gallery flanked by colorful Georgian and Dutch facades. You’ll then return to the Company Gardens for a visit to the South African National Gallery.

Back in the minivan, you’ll travel to the village of Muizenberg, home to Casa Labia.

You’ll then continue on to the quaint seaside village of Kalk Bay where the pace of life is a little slower, and explore its quirky shops, antiques, crafts, and art.
