Time to put all ‘plans’ into action, Mr Griffith
In the few months that he has been Minister of National Security, Gary Griffith has been saying quite a lot about how he plans to tackle the crime problem. He is keen on high-tech crime-fighting solutions and seems to have many ideas about how the problem should be tackled.
But Mr Griffith—the fourth minister to hold that portfolio in an administration that is just past its three-and-a-half-year mark—needs to add some clarity and distinction to his ministerial assignment by ensuring that his plans and promises are quickly translated into action and results. The country has had more than its share of unfulfilled promises and failed programmes on crime.
Therefore, based on all the promises he has made so far, the minister needs to introduce short-term initiatives that will yield quick results. He must be ever mindful of the fact that he is part of an administration that came to power in 2010 promising to deal decisively with the out-of-control crime situation—a promise on which it is yet to deliver.
