Police minister reveals closure of five million dockets without result

# Police minister Bheki Cele has unveiled concerning statistics, revealing over five-million police case dockets were closed without resolution in the past five years. Cele attributed the closure to lack of leads. DA member of Parliament, Andrew Whitfield, has criticised the revelation, saying it highlights the failure of SAPS leadership. Whitfield emphasises the lack of justice for victims and slams the police for being non-responsive, under-resourced and lacking in leadership and skills.
