Premier Alan Winde explains why the province believes a two-month presence in the gang-riddled area is not enough.

The SANDF deployment on the gang-infested Cape Flats is coming to an end in 15 days. What now?

Minister of Police Bheki Cele deployed South African National Defence Force troops to ten designated areas under an eight-week mandate to curb the scourge of gang violence.

Refilwe Moloto speaks to Western Cape Premier Alan Winde about whether the SANDF should leave or not.

RELATED: Will SANDF troops stay longer in the Cape Flats?

Alan Winde, Premier - Western Cape Government
