50 more cops to be deployed in Nyanga
The deployment is a boost for Operation Stopper, which was launched last month, in an effort to reduce crime.
CAPE TOWN - The Deputy Police Minister Makhotso Sotyu says an additional fifty police officers will be deployed to Nyanga.
The deployment is a boost for Operation Stopper, which was launched last month, in an effort to reduce crime in Nyanga and its surrounding areas.
On Saturday, three men were gunned down while watching the Springboks match and several others, including a nine-year-old boy, were injured in the shooting.
Sotyu has visited two of the families who were affected by Saturday's shooting.
Ncikazi Tekani's brother was one of the men who was shot on Saturday.
"I can say that I am hurt, but I am more angry than I am hurt."
Tekani says the lack of policing in the area has led to an increase in crime.
Sotyu has vowed to deploy more policemen to the Nyanga area to boost efforts to fight crime.
