The Western Cape MEC of Community Safety Dan Plato said taking the law into your own hands will not make our communities safer.

This follows the vigilante attack in Lwandle over the weekend which left three people dead.
MEC Plato said vigilantism is a crime and it will not be tolerated by law enforcement agencies.

Ministerial Spokesperson Ewald Botha said no matter what the circumstances or allegations are, we cannot allow communities to catch, prosecute, convict and deal a death sentence to alleged criminals.

Botha added that MEC Plato further calls on the boarder in the Lwandle community to assist the police in their investigation and calls on community leaders across the province to help prevent vigilante attacks from occurring.
He concluded by saying that where communities feel they do not receive the necessary safety services being delivered, they should report it either to the Neighbourhood Watch or Community Policing Forum for escalation, or check the Office of the Western Cape Cape Provincial Police Ombudsman, or directly to the Department of Community Safety by lodging a complaint at 021 483 4332.
