ACDP calls for swift action to gang activity in Maneberg
27 May 2015
The African Cristian Democratic Party has called on law enforcement officials to take a swift action to bring an end to gang activity in Manenberg, which has spread to clinics.
It is alleged that clinics have started closing early, resulting in outreach programme being cancelled, medical staff asking for transfers, stock deliveries and transport routes for service providers have all been affected.
ACDP Leader in the Western Cape Ferlon Christians said the effects of gang violence will continue to increase unless drastic steps are taken.
"We as the ACDP believe that the problem is with police shortage, we ask the Minster of police and National Commissioner to intervene and look at the shortage of police in Manenberg.” Christians added.
