sapsSunday Tribune reports that fed-up members of Durban’s Public Order Policing (Pop) Unit have decided to embark on a go-slow from Monday.  

Members sent a letter of grievance to their union, the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) on Wednesday.  In it they claimed they were being placed in static positions and were being forced to work as security guards, which was not part of their duties.  Popcru KZN secretary Ntabeleng Molefe said the union was soliciting information from its members in all units in order to engage the management of the SAPS.  A police spokesman said:  The SAPS is regarded as an essential service and will not entertain members who are on a go-slow.”
