1875 people murdered in the Western Cape in the past 6 months

Recommended Posts

Crime is completely out of control in the Western Cape. In the last six months 1875 people were murdered in the province, and in the past week alone 14 cases of murder were reported.

 

This shocking statistic has spurred on the Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Albert Fritz, to reach out to National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele to intervene.

 

In a press statement Fritz said, “War is commonly defined by the UN and other such institutions as an act of conflict that has claimed more than 1000 lives. In the Western Cape, 1875 people were murdered in the past six months alone. This means that many of our most vulnerable residents in the province are living in a war zone.”

 

Fritz will reach out to Cele to host an urgent meeting to address these senseless killings.

 

Further to this, he will attend the Provincial Courts Efficiency Committee Meeting on Wednesday, June 12 chaired by Judge President Hlope where he will again call for the police to act.

 

“As the Western Cape Government we will continue to do everything within our power to prevent crime through our programmes whilst working with our communities. Amongst others, these programmes prioritise the development of youth and drive job creation to ensure that individuals do not have to resort to a life of crime,” said Fritz.
