[LISTEN] Simon's Town residents accuse authorities of ignoring lawlessness
Angry Simon's Town residents say authorities have shrugged off their concerns over what they say is increasing lawlessness in the area.
They say their requests for full-time intervention, management and control of the Seaforth Parking lot and surrounds are being ignored.
