Six months longer for the army on the Cape Flats?

extending SANDF Cape Flat's deployment
The official mandate of SANDF troops presence in troubled parts of the Cape Flats comes to an end on 16 September.

There are just five days remaining of the official deployment of the SANDF troops to the most troubled parts of Cape Town, but it looks like an extension could be on the cards.

Troops originally entered certain areas of the Cape Flats under an eight-week mandate, but Western Cape Premier Alan Winde has asked President Cyril Ramaphosa and Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula for soliders to remain for another six months.

Two months is really quick, it's too short to really have a view on what's happening.

However, Winde's request is not without certain conditions.

We need to have more of a coordinated approach...

Alan Winde, Premier - Western Cape Government

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

I want to see clear safety with measurable outcomes, I'm not seeing that at the moment.

Alan Winde, Premier - Western Cape Government

He also wants to see the mandate extended to other parts of the city.

I want to see blitzes that move out of the 15 designated areas.

Alan Winde, Premier - Western Cape Government
