CAPE TOWN - Community leaders in Imizamo Yethu say despite a lull in violent crime in the area, patrols will continue to maintain order.
It appears gangs in the area who have been feuding for weeks, have called a truce of sorts.
In recent weeks there has been spate of fatal stabbings in the area.
Community leader Samkelo Krweqe said community crime-fighting initiatives will continue.
"We patrol the streets. If you're on the street, we want to know why you're there. We've instrcuted these gang boys to stay at home because we don't want them hanging around on street corners."
Last week, the residents have vowed to patrol the area every night until order is restored.
