At a time when the country is looking closely at the criminal justice system with a view to prosecuting and reversing the gains from those who benefited through state capture, it is imperative that these departments and entities perform optimally.

Only if our people know that we are winning the war against crime and corruption can we restore faith in the rule of law.
