SAPS is looking the other way as no active steps are being taken to prevent the wave of crime that is ravishing parts of Kameeldrift, East in Pretoria

Despite a wave of crime that ravages Kameeldrift East in Pretoria, it seems that the SAPS is simply looking the other way, as no active steps are being taken to provide badly needed relief for this agricultural community. AfriForum launched several actions to support this besieged area in its battle to call the SAPS to account to ensure that the local police station functions properly to effectively help the community. Among other, AfriForum launched a court application to compel the community to send reservists for the prescribed training to enable them to supplement the understaffed police station. AfriForum also monitors the investigation of various cases, among them that of former Springbok Naka Drotské, who was injured during a farm attack on his brother’s smallholding. Another is that of Manie Entres, whose wife was murdered in his presence. In both cases, the SAPS investigative abilities were shocking. AfriForum has already voiced its dissatisfaction in a lette…

Illegal land grabbers in Faerie Glen, Pretoria East became very hostile and threatened the community that they will burn down their homes and kill them

Dear Residents, I just got back from an attempted land grab of Municipal Property in Faerie Glen, Plaston Str. I arrived on site this afternoon with the community who wanted to meet with the 'owners' of the property after they started building and even put in an illegal water connection to this property, probably to make the construction seem more legitimate. Unfortunately for the land grabbers, the community is very well organized and aware of the fact that this property is a Municipal Road Reserve. I immediately contacted the MMC as well as the Chairperson of Roads & Transport from the site, who confirmed my position that no Municipal Land was sold to these 'owners'. I proceeded to disrupt this meeting, saying that we cannot engage with thugs grabbing land and, unless they can prove the contrary, they should leave - this prompted the land grabbers, who were very diplomatic up until then, to show their true colors and intent. The land grabbers became very h…

'n Man is Woensdag in die vroeë oggendure ten aanskoue van sy sesjarige dogter en sy verloofde geskiet toe inbrekers toegang tot hul huis op ’n plaas in Leeuwfontein naby Roodeplaat in Pretoria wou verkry. Jonty Jacobs (28) is verskeie kere raakgeskiet toe hy op die aanvallers geskree het. Hy is in ’n kritieke toestand na die Steve Biko- akademiese hospitaal geneem. “Hy het tussen 02:00 en 03:00 wakker geword toe iemand die houtraam van die venster probeer oopbreek het,” sê Ian Cameron, die burgerregte-organisasie AfriForum se hoof van gemeenskapsveiligheid. “Hy is meer as een keer getref, vermoedelik ook in die ruggraat. “Hulle het ’n week of twee gelede verloof geraak,” sê hy. Sers. Portia Maleka, polisiewoordvoerder, sê die polisie het Woensdag omstreeks 03:00 gereageer op die voorval.

Pretoria man robbed while ‘police stood idly by’

The policemen did not help because the crime was not part of their division. A businessman has accused the police of standing idly by while he was being robbed in the north of Pretoria, Pretoria North Rekord reports. Louis Eloff said this happened during a protest. He sells and distributes paint across Pretoria. Eloff said he was on his way to make a delivery in Hammanskraal when he ran in to a group of protesters along Soutpan Road in Soshanguve. “About 100 people ran towards my van and stopped it. They took all the buckets of paint on the trailer and got away.” Eloff said the stock was worth more than R25 000. “Two policemen stood there and watched. When I approached them to ask for help, they said it was not their division.” He said he did not lay charges because this would be a waste of time. “Why would I do that when I know that there are thousands of murders, rapes and armed robberies on their books that will never be solved?” Soshanguve police …
