Watch: SAPS arrest armed robbe

When you are in a situation where you have to call the SAPS, do you have confidence that they will be there in a respectable amount of time? Many South Africans don’t, there are huge amounts of crime in our country and nowhere near close to enough police officers to deal with it all. Let’s not even factor in possible incompetence issues…

Well, we also have a brand new Minister Of Police, Former Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula is now in the SAPS hot seat, can he handle the pressure? Razzmatazz (Mbalula’s nickname) has already warned criminals that go for Police Officers that they will be “outgunned”.

Maybe, just maybe, Mbalula has had some sort of positive jolt effect on his SAPS officers (wishful thinking, we know). In the last 24 hours, footage has emerged of alleged armed robbers being arrested in the middle of the M7 freeway in Durban, Metro Police and SAPS officers quickly swooped on the vehicle with the criminals and took fast action, pinning the man on the ground with precision.

This arrest comes just a few days after video went viral of a devastating heist of a Cash In Transit van, also in the middle of a highway.  The cops couldn’t get to that one as the van was surrounded by traffic. The robbers literally blew up the van in order to gain access to the money, sending debris flying into the air.
