The Western Cape deputy commissioner of crime detection as well as the head of the anti-gang unit of the Saps, Major-General Jeremy Vearey speaks to CapeTalk’s Kieno Kammies about dealing with gangs that are terrorising people living in the Cape Flats on a daily basis.

In recent weeks, there has been an outcry from residents in Hanover Park, Bonteheuwel and Kensington for the police ministry to address gangsterism in the areas, where there’s been a flare-up in fatal attacks.

Vearey says they are having significant successes with the arrests of highflyers with the utilisation of the Organised Crimes Act Section 9.

These investigations involve a long-range intelligence driven focus. It was clearly targeted at gang leaders, it’s business side and money, and together with dedicated prosecutors from the NPA, we were able to build cases that brought about significant results.

Vearey says through this dedicated mission they have managed to put Stanfield and 23 others of the 28 gang behind bars and will be appearing in the Khayelitsha Gang Priority Court on 22 October.

This is about smarter, clearly targeted intelligence operations which don’t require large numbers. The large numbers will be good when it comes to operations but in the absence of large number materialising, we need to work smarter.
