"Bundu courts" resurface in Khayelitsha

Khayelitsha police have urged residents of the area, especially those in Site B, not to take the law into their own hands.

This request follows after three incidents of so-called “bundu courts” at the weekend.

It is alleged that a group of community members stoned suspects believed to have been involved in housebreaking and theft in the area.

“Police maintain a zero tolerance against these community members. These incidents will not assist the police in the solving of crimes in any way but rather assist in generating additional problems with regards to crime,” says Constable Mthokozisi Gama

“We need to rid our area of vigilante groups and make our streets safe for our children again,” added Gama.

Anyone with information regarding the incidents is requested to contact Superintendent Franklin Plaatjies, Khayelitsha Detective Services, on 082 469 1681 or during office hours on 021 360 2359.
