More victims of blue light brigades wanted


Rise Mzansi appealed on Wednesday to South Africans who also kicked off a set with the police’s VIP Protection Services Unit to come forward with information about it.

The party does not believe the recent incident on the N1 was an isolated case and that many other South Africans probably have similar stories to tell.

The party has already asked the executive director of the Independent Police Investigation Directorate (Opod) to expand the scope of her investigation to expose the alleged systemic lawlessness within the police VIP Protection Unit.

Rise Mzansi is asking South Africans who at one stage were pushed off the road by so-called blue light brigades, at whom a firearm was pointed or who were assaulted, to come forward with details about the incidents.

Makashule Gana from Rise Mzansi says the party wants to prevent the recent incident on the N1 from being seen as an “isolated and unfortunate” incident.

The party requires the following details of victims:

  • Date and time of the incident
  • Location of the incident
  • Description of the incident
  • Any other relevant information

Information can na (email protected) be sent.
