Tourist guides and residents are concerned about lack of safety on Table Mountain following the mugging of tourists over the weekend who were mugged at knifepoint while climbing Lions Head.
We also heard accounts of how hikers and other mountain users have been victims of crime, particularly in the Vlakkenberg area of Table Mountain.
CapeTalk presenter John Maytham spoke to Alan Winde, Western Cape MEC for Economic Opportunities about the safety of mountain users:
According to Winde, he is being meeting with relevant people to make sure the safety forum is back to where it should be.
We need to make sure we up our game. Maybe we need to have drones in addition to the dog's unit.— Alan Winde, MEC: Economic Opportunities
