Commuters on the Metrorail trains are concerned about the security. There are concerns of lack of security guards and that people are being robbed by thugs at the station.
The Cape Times today reported about a letter written by a commuter to the newspaper, where there are no security officers at the train station in Bishop Lavis, which is prone to crime.
Mike Wills (standing in for John Maytham) spoke to Riana Scott, Spokesperson at Metrorail to find out what is Metrorail doing to remedy the situation.
According to Scott there was another incident on Wendesday night where 20 people were robbed of their belongings on the Metrorail train but only 4 reported the matter to the police.
She says that if people don’t report these incidences then they are unable to request the deployment of more security guards because they have to produce evidence. If it is not reported, it didn’t happen, she says.
