Limpopo police proud of best World Cup experience

JOHANNESBURG - Limpopo police said they were proud to have delivered a safe and secure 2010 FIFA World Cup in the province.
The final game at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane was played last Thursday.

Deputy provincial commissioner, Major General Benny Ntlemeza, attributed the police’s success to the co-operation that existed among every division and department involved.

All the departments were on the same page, right from the planning phase of the security strategy. We had the privilege of hosting four matches and not a single incident was reported.

“We instilled a sense of responsibility in every person involved, to such an extent that everybody felt that the success of the tournament lay on his or her shoulders, he said.

Ntlemeza said he had combined the security plans of the Department of Safety and Security, the office of the premier and the SAPS to ensure that no loopholes remained.

Our members were ready to handle any situation and we had 150 members on stand-by during the World Cup games,” he said, adding that the police would continue to maintain their high visibility, even though the World Cup was over in the province.
