Nelson Mandela Bay Chinese Community Police Forum Inauguration and South African Business Society Inauguration held their joint inauguration ceremony on October 25 in Port Elizabeth.
The event received a massive crowd that helped the two associations celebrate in style. The event was graced with the presence of the Chairman of Chinese CPF in Nelson Mandela Bay Mr Binwu Zhuang, Chairman of the Johannesburg Chinese CPF Mr Wu Shaokang, Chairman of AFCPPRC Mr Li Xin Zhu, Deputy Consular general Mrs Li Lipei and the Consular Wang Zhigang.
The key note speaker was the Station Commander Leonie Bentley who said that the main “objective was that the community must guide us how they want to be policed” and improvements of policing could only be seen with the partnership of the Community Police Forums (CPF), Non-governmental Organisations and the Business Forums. She admits that they were sceptical in the beginning but the partnership has yielded many fruit.
Chinese CPF members, Consular Generals from the Port Elizabeth district and Chinese Community members were all present.
