A total of 3 800 members of the SAPS in the Eastern Cape are experiencing delays in receiving payment for extra duties performed during the Soccer World Cup. It is anticipated that the matter will be finalised on 10 September 2010.
This was revealed in response to a question for written reply to me by the MEC for Safety, Liaison and Transport, Ghishma Barry.
It is understandable that members of the SAPS in the Eastern Cape are frustrated that they haven’t received their payments and it is essential that this matter is finalised as quickly as possible.
We need a highly motivated service if we are to combat crime. When members experience problems with their benefits it impacts on their overall performance and the community ends up the loser.
