The City of Cape Town’s Vice Squad over the weekend conducted several operations in clamping down on sex trade in and around the city. 

Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security JP Smith said during the operations they were able to close a house used as a brothel in Goodwood.

Smith said they are working hard with the Hawks to ensure that there are convictions for the people who are involved in sex trade especially those who are busy ruining the lives of young people.

Meanwhile Smith said the City’s Vice Squad has been trying to clamp down on various parts of the sex trade in three ways including street walkers, residential brothels and trafficking cases. 

Over the weekend operations were conducted in Parow and Goodwood dealing with illegal property.

Smith said street walkers and properties that are being used as brothels in residential areas generate lost of complaints.  The city reacts to this by using the Land use legislation and the Business Act. 

“Our unit also deals with trafficking cases and we have had a few successes in rescuing young woman and in some cases men who have been brought into this industry often under false pretences and promises”.
