In an official media statement released by provincial police, Lt Gen Mkhwanazi said these searches are necessary to mitigate the risk posed to shoppers who visit these stores.

“We shall support such compulsory measures. Police officers, who visit these stores as clients of Woolworths, should be subject to the same procedures reserved for all customers, whether they are in uniform or not,” Lt Gen Mkhwanazi stated.
