Ramaphosa said Cele had already been to the crime scene.
“We are following up on this horrible incident that happened ... Communities across the country live in fear, worried about gangsterism, armed robberies, rape and murder.
'Women and children are particularly vulnerable to the violence perpetrated against them by men,” said Ramaphosa.
He said crime also had a negative impact on the economy.
“The economy is being held back by damage to infrastructure, extortion at construction sites, corruption and the high cost of securing businesses and insuring assets.
“These problems have been made worse by deepening poverty and inequality and by the impact of state capture on law enforcement agencies and security services.”
Since the 54th national conference, Ramaphosa said much has been done to prioritise building capacity within the law enforcement system.
“We have done much to restore the capabilities and credibility of the National Prosecuting Authority, the SA Police Service, the Hawks and the State Security Agency.”
