Gigaba’s 14-point plan – any collaboration there?

By now we’ve got a good sense of Malusi Gigaba’s ability to collaborate. Tragically it appears to have been misguided, but if I was a religious person, I’d probably be quoting some biblical passage alluding to the forgiveness of sinners. Just last week, the OECD called out South Africa’s poor growth forecasts and Gigaba agreed noting that there was a 14-point plan ready for implementation. I’d be really interested in understanding the 14-point plan, in particular the collaborative aspects of the plan.

Is collaborative policing possible in the cowboy, gun-toting wild west?

In most developed nations, if asked as to who is responsible for public safety, the answer would, of course, be the police. In South Africa, I would guess that many would answer that it’s a combination of police and private security companies. So the question that emerges is as follows; ‘is leaving public safety entirely to the police a mistake?’
