ONKGOPOTSE JJ TABANE: Robert McBride restored the dignity of the police, but he was told to go

It is a sad reality that our police force is rotten to the core. Over the past 25 years, we have fought a losing battle to restore it. Instead, every day makes us lose faith in those who are meant to protect life and limb.
