    A very sad weekend for Hout Bay. First the senseless shooting of our wonderful police officers and then the boat tragedy.

    @sandy sad to hear the police officer was murdered but wonderful definatley not ... Hout Bay Police are the laziest in the country ,when i reported a mugging one of the female police officers ignored made me sign a form and talked abt how hungry she was.THe police dnt care abt protecting the people there are tons of thugs who hide on the sand dunes waiting for women to rob. The only place you will see police officers day and night in Hout Bay is KFC
