The City of Cape Town says it intends pursuing charges against those who slaughtered…

The City of Cape Town says it intends pursuing charges against those who slaughtered a sheep on Clifton’s Fourth Beach on Friday evening. Activists staged a protest amid a furore over access to the beach, and the group slaughtered a sheep as part of a cleansing ceremony to rid the beach of what they called racist spirits. The protest, organised by the Black Peoples’ National Crisis Committee follows the alleged closure of the beach a week ago when members of the public were allegedly told to leave the beach as it closes at 8pm. Law enforcement authorities as well as the private security company PPA have denied closing the beach. The City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith says the slaughtering of the sheep saw not only the City’s bylaws being transgressed but also national legislation: “It is common practice for the City’s Law enforcement to issue fines or notices with an admission of guilt fine or no admission of guilt fine with a Court appearance for persons transgressing by-laws or other applicable legislation. In the case where the officers are unable to issue the fine at the moment of the transgression if there is ample evidence of the offence. The officials may proceed to do so afterwards.”
