CAPE TOWN – The Nyango Community Policing Forum has called on criminals to stop attacking Golden Arrow buses because residents of the township are also suffering.
Police Forum Secretary Dumisani Kwebe said attacks on buses put passengers’ lives at risk. “Every time you attack buses, you attack life on buses [too] it will be lost,” he said.
Qwebe said they then called for a meeting with local taxi drivers “so they can discuss their permits and licences”.
The city’s security officials say that in the last 48 hours, the criminal syndicate organized the latest attacks, during which several Golden Arrow buses and cars were set on fire.
Qwebe condemned the violence: “We are devastated by what happened on Thursday and it has had a profound impact on our operations.”
