Lentegeur residents demand permanent anti-gang unit
Mitchells Plain residents took to the streets on Sunday to demand that the anti-gang unit launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa last week and Saps have a permanent presence in the area.
The organiser of the protest in Lentegeur, Samsoniesa Taliep says they are protesting for a safer community within Mitchells Plain.
She says they are tired of the gun violence, gangsterism and robberies in the area.
