Disaster management and law enforcement authorities are once again appealing to residents and tourists that are coming to Cape Town not to discharge fire works or to use them or keep them illegally.
Disaster Risk Management’s WIilfred Solomons-Johannes said “the city has approved two applications for organised fireworks displays on 31 December 2008; Breakwater, V & A Waterfront (behind the Cape Grace Hotel) and Leeukoppie Estate, Suikerbossie Road in Hout Bay.”
“Law enforcement authorities will conduct various inspections and will take action against any person, who illegally discharges fireworks or handles fireworks and a fine of R1000 will be issued or imprisonment of 12 months,” said Solomons-Johannes
