CPT says looting during protests is unacceptable

Lusanda Bill

The City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Security JP Smith said the looting of shops which happened during the illegal march on Thursday was problematic and unacceptable. 

Protestors tried to march to the Provincial Legislature over land and sanitation issues but were blocked by police resulting in 12 people being arrested.

Smith said they are assessing the damages and will make such that the people responsible for the looting be punished. 

“The City will be including costs incurred as part of its civil legal action against the organisers and coordinators of the illegal activity.  The city is already busying finalising legal papers for the civil action” Smith said.

Smith said the coordinators have to be held responsible and there has to be consequences for their action.
