Sophiatown, Reiger Park, and Eldorado Park had seen a spike in gang-related crimes during the 2019/2020 financial year, DA Gauteng MPL Lebo More said on Sunday.

JOHANNESBURG - The DA has called on Gauteng community safety MEC Faith Mazibuko to strengthen the fight against gang-related crime, as communities "are at risk and lawlessness is the order of the day".

This was revealed by Mazibuko in a written reply to DA questions tabled in the Gauteng provincial legislature, More said. According to Mazibuko, the Gauteng anti-gang task team was established at the end of the 2018/19 financial year. A total of 43 cases related to gangsterism had been reported since its inception.

This clearly indicated that gang-related crimes were also a serious problem facing communities. Fighting gang-related crime should not only happen once a year, but should rather be the focus of ongoing crime fighting activity by the South African Police Service . This should include local patrols as well as having an extensive local intelligence network.
