Nyanga Police Caution E-Hailing Drivers And Online Traders Against Venturing To Brown’s Farm As Robberies Continue

Nyanga police have recorded numerous robbery cases where Marketplace users and e-hailing drivers fall prey to scammers and robberies.


They have cautioned delivery drivers and traders in the area to be cautious following several robberies and attacks in the area, specifically targeting E-hailing and online traders.

“The majority of the robbery victims we interviewed as the police revealed they do not know the area at all. Some of the victims were even under the impression the area they were called out to was not a township but a farm,” says Nyanga station commander, Brigadier Lindiwe Dyantyi.

“While the precinct experienced a slight decrease in reported cases after the September/October arrests, the incidents have gone up again. It is on this basis we caution both e-hailing drivers and online sellers to reconsider venturing out to Brown’s Farm,” she added.

Nyanga police together with the local Community Police Forum and neighbourhood watch members continue to patrol the identified hotspots and deployments have increased.
