Niks word gedoen nie

Ek het die berig gelees oor hoe mense verwyder was, maar kom kyk hoe lyk dit in die oggend 5uur – die tyd wanneer ek taxi vat by Parow polisie stasie, en ook op naweke, niks word gedoen nie (“Problem parking to be sold”, Northern News, June 8). Ek het al binne die polisie stasie gaan kla, maar niks was gedoen nie. Ek soek graag terugvoering. Ek hoop iets kan daaraan gedoen word – Zelda Victor, Parow.

The City’s Law Enforcement Department and Reintegration Unit tries to conduct interventions in as many areas as possible.

Unfortunately, we simply do not have the resources to be everywhere, all of the time. It should also be noted that street people are transient and do not necessarily frequent the same spots all the time. More than that, we cannot force street people to accept offers of assistance. We encourage the resident to report any concerns around street people to the City’s Social Development Department on 0800 872 201.
