President Zuma will have to decide if the army should be deployed to help police battle crime in the Western Cape and Gauteng. Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has requested the Defence Minister to send in soldiers to gang hotspots in the two provinces. Mbalula argues that the intensity of violent crimes in parts of these provinces, particularly Cape Town, calls for urgent intervention. As commander-in-chief of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF), President Jacob Zuma has the final say in terms of soldier deployment.
