JOHANNESBURG - The City of Ekurhuleni says it's ramping up security and infrastructure at the Mooifontein Cemetery in Kempton Park.

Criminals have reportedly been stealing ashes from the resting place.

The metro's Themba Gadebe said: “We just need to beef it up with fencing around the crematorium area because we don’t have similar problems elsewhere.”
