CPFs join pledge against gangsters

2016-02-09 06:00

Several Mitchell’s Plain organisations have made their voices heard.

The Mitchell’s Plain Community Police Forum (CPF) and Strandfontein CPF and their attached bodies have pledged their support for the campaign #GangsterismMustFall.

The campaign calls for support from organisations and communities to join the fight against gangsterism.

Sandy Schuter Jacobs, chairperson of the Strandfontein CPF, openly pledged her support of the initiative, challenging residents to join the fight against crime.

Launched in December, the movement has been drumming up support from all over the city with the hope of seeing gangsterism fall in the Western Cape.

The first march was held in Manenberg last Saturday and saw thousands of people join.

Prior to the march, Abie Isaacs, chairperson of the Mitchell’s Plain CPF, told People’s Post he stood behind the cause 100%.

“Everyone complains about crime, but no-one wants to sacrifice the time to raise their concerns. This is a good initiative and we support it,” he said.
