Reagan Allen has been sworn in as the Western Cape’s Community Safety and Police Oversight MEC.
This follows his appointment by Premier Alan Winde last week.
In his first 100 days in office, Allen says he will take a proactive role in ensuring safety in communities across the province.
Winde says he’s confident Allen will do what is needed to make real change.
“I welcome him to this cabinet, and I’m pretty certain that those broad shoulder of his are going to be able to take this responsibility to the next level. Safety is a big issue for me, safety is a big issue for this government. I look forward to seeing him shine.”
