The National Joint Operational and Intelligence Structure (NATJOINTS) has expressed confidence in South Africa’s ability to successfully host the upcoming 15th Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) Summit.

Lieutenant General Tebello Mosikili, the Deputy National Commissioner responsible for Policing, assured the public that, just like the previous summit held in the country, the event will take place in a safe and secure environment.


Scheduled to take place in Sandton, Johannesburg from 22 to 24 August 2023, the 15th BRICS Summit will gather Heads of States, Ministers, and leaders from various countries worldwide. Addressing the media in Pretoria, Mosikili emphasized that NATJOINTS is fully prepared to ensure a secure environment for the summit, minimizing any incidents of instability or criminality.


A priority committee, consisting of various government departments from all three spheres, has been meeting regularly to develop a comprehensive security plan. This plan includes considerations for transport, routes, venue, accommodation, traffic control, and border security. Mosikili highlighted that all critical role players are ready to fulfill their responsibilities as per their mandate.

To enhance security, NATJOINTS will increase police visibility in and around the conference center, aiming to prevent and combat opportunistic crime before, during, and after the summit. With cooperation from law enforcement agencies, such as the Ekurhuleni Metro Police Department and Johannesburg Metro Police Department, the security plan will be effectively implemented, increasing boots on the ground.

Mosikili emphasized the importance of each deployed law enforcement officer executing their duty professionally, impartially, and with integrity. Cooperation from the public is also essential, and any illegal acts will be dealt with decisively within the confines of the law.

Regarding the security of the venue, only individuals with valid accreditation will have access to the restricted areas. Those found with fraudulent credentials will face legal consequences. Additionally, the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition and the BRICS Business Council will host the BRICS Business Programme, highlighting economic growth, collaboration, investment, and opportunities within South Africa, Africa, and the BRICS countries.

Residents in the City of Johannesburg should be aware of limited access in areas surrounding the Sandton Convention Centre during the summit. Road closures will be in place from 20 to 24 August 2023, including key intersections such as Maude and West Streets, West Street and Alice Lane, and Alice Lane and 5th Street. On 23 August 2023, road closures will also affect the Midrand Gallagher Estate area.
