Zille addresses Nyanga residents on crime
Nyanga residents say police need to take crime in the area more seriously.
NYANGA - Western Cape Premier Helen Zille on Saturday said she was positive that the government can win the fight against crime in Nyanga, Cape Town.
Zille was addressing a crowd at a safety summit at the Zolani Community Hall in Nyanga.
The hall was packed with community members, the neighbourhood watch and government officials.
The safety summit is a platform for residents to raise their concerns about crime in the area and to give their input on how to make the community safer.
According to Zille, the crime in Nyanga is amongst the highest in South Africa.
The Premier said the only way to crack down on crime is if the community continues to report on criminal activities.
But Nyanga residents said police need to take more responsibility.
