SA Law Enforcement Agencies on High Alert Amid Threats of a “National Shutdown”

Aug 22, 2021

Faizel Patel – 22/08/2021

South Africa’s law enforcement agencies are on high alert to ensure the safety of citizens amid threats of a national shutdown.

The National Joint Operational and Intelligence Structure (NatJOINTS) says it is aware of inflammatory messages on various social media platforms advocating for violence on Monday.

NatJOINTS  says it is also aware of messages calling on people to  mobilise and respond to the shutdown.

Spokesperson Mathapelo Peters says the public is urged not to respond to the calls for violence and criminality and participating in activities that seek to defy the rule of law and undermine the authority of the State.

“Those behind these messages are warned that inciting violence is a criminal offence. Members of the public are cautioned against spreading such divisive messages. Law abiding citizens should be at ease knowing that  the NatJOINTS is not taking these threats lightly. Security forces are on high alert and ready to maintain stability in the country, and ensure the safety and security of South Africans.”

NatJOINTS has called on Community Police Forums and related sub-forums to work with the police and to mobilise the community against any form of lawlessness.
