For the Winston Park residents who filed complaints with me regarding the party that was held on Jan Smuts Avenue on the weekend of 17/18 January. Last week I posed the questions below to the Deputy Head of Metro Police and as yet have not received a reply. If no reply is forthcoming by Friday of this week which is the deadline for us to submit written questions for the February council meeting I will be submitting these same questions to be answered in council. 1. Was authorization sought for this party with this number of vehicles and people? 2. If it was, who granted the authorization? 3. Due to the number of people that were at this single family residence, was the Fire Department consulted and approval sought? 4. If not, why not? 5. Was authorization sought for the carrying of fully automatic weapons by "body guards" outside of the property perimeter? 6. If it was, who granted the authorization? 7. Who authorized Metro Police to be on duty directing traffic at this private party? 8. Who will be paying for the deployment of Metro Police at this private party? 9. Was any special dispensation granted to the homeowner, Mr Bhoyizana Magubane because his family member, Mr Emmanuel Magubane is an ANC Member of Parliament?
The DA is expected to dig deep into its pockets to ensure the safety of Kingsol Chabalala as friends, family and colleagues worry that the people who shot him will return to finish him off.
