Police in Kensington have acted on a complaint that young children are abusing a pair of vulnerable pensioners in the community.
CapeTalk listener Lea called to lament the lack of action from police officers after reporting the matter on several occasions.
It's alleged that four children would invade the old women's home and steal food and other items.
Since speaking to presenter Kieno Kammies, Western Cape Deputy Police Commissioner Major General Jeremy Veary sent officers to remove and question the teenagers.
Police have asked the Department of Social Development to intervene in the case as they suspect one of the children could have a drug problem.
Social Development MEC Albert Fritz says that a great deal of youth are terrorising vulnerable senior citizens and stealing their social grants.
Fritz explains that the children could face charges for trespassing, among other offences.
He says that he will investigate the case to help rehabilitate the children and assist the pensioners.
