34 murders have been reported in the Western Cape this past weekend, mostly in…

34 murders have been reported in the Western Cape this past weekend, mostly in Delft on the Cape Flats. Provincial authorities say this represents a decrease of 13 murders compared to the previous weekend. They say most of the incidents were a result of shootings. Provincial cabinet will meet this week to discuss a report from the South African Police Services on crime, safety operations and the use of the SA Defence Force in areas such as the Cape Flats. The army was deployed to gang afflicted areas last month.

  1. We don’t see army around us even at night no army ,so what is the use of army if they only come weekend evening two hrs after they gone 😢# feeling disappointed

  2. The issue of the deployment of the army from my point of view is the meer fact that they are a one large group that moves together and operates in one specific area at a time. We as the Police don’t even do that because we understand that we need to scatter around and penetrate multiple areas simultaneously. Now the army lacks such understanding because they don’t know about policing and therefore this type of deployment does not achieve crime combat per se but it does what we call crime displacement, meaning if the army is in Delf, there’ll be shootings in Manenberg and other areas where there’s no army at that particular time and vice-versa. They are a lot, split them into smaller groups and let them patrol as many areas as possible simultaneously on a daily bases and you’ll be amazed by the percentage to which crime will decrease. This is what I have experienced while working with the army. And yes the number of murders has decreased since they have arrived in Cape Town but it could be much more better🙏

  3. As resident of delft i only see the army from far they never drive by our street where there are lots of drugs and guns 🤔🤔
