Western Cape Community Safety MEC, Leonard Ramatlakane has issued a stern warning against vigilantism. He urges communities to work with police and government in the fight against, crime, drugs and gangs.

“We call on the community to resist the temptation of supporting vigilantism for short term gains,” says Ramatlakane.

Ramatlakane added that they have been cracking down on drugs such as Tik, gangs and crime.

“We will also deal with anyone suspected of taking the law into their own hands. Police will not hesitate to use the Prevention of Organised Crime Act (POA), against such suspects,” says Ramatlakane.

He added that the Police and Government will work with those law-abiding citizens who want to fight crime, drugs and gansterism.
