The Democratic Alliance says a crime wave across Pretoria is forcing residents and businesses to relocate to other areas.

Launching the party’s strategy to reduce crime, Brandon Topham, the DA’s mayoral candidate for the city, said community safety should become a priority.

He wants Metro law enforcers to be more visible and specialised units to be reinstated.

Meanwhile Topham called on Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality to urgently intervene in the over-crowding of the Schubert Park building in the city centre.

He added that the building has also become a haven for criminals and thugs.

He says he was recently barred from entering the building when he tried to make a thorough assessment
