CAPE TOWN - The Public Protector may have to wade into the Clifton beach saga.

The African National Congress (ANC) in the Western Cape will ask the institution to probe the incident which saw private security guards ask beachgoers at Clifton 4th Beach to leave the area after sunset.

It sparked an outcry and a spate of protest.

ANC spokesperson Dennis Cruywagen says they want answers.

“It is our understanding that areas comprising of Sea Point are paying PPA to do work for them that is enforcing a curfew on the beach and that is also getting vendors off the street, both of which are illegal. We want to know what is going on.”
