# The DA’s national police spokesperson, Andrew Whitfield, has called for the removal of Police minister Bheki Cele, citing failed leadership and ineffective crime management. This demand comes in the wake of concerning crime statistics presented by Cele, revealing alarming figures. The latest crime report exposed that over six-thousand murders and 13-thousand-and-90 sexual offenses, among other crimes, were recorded for the three months from July to September. Whitfield highlights the unacceptably high DNA backlog of over fifty thousand case exhibits, compromising the criminal justice system.
