THE rise in crime in KwaDukuza has sparked a movement, led by the Democratic Alliance (DA), who have planned a march against crime on Saturday, November 17 from Sadtu Park, next to the KwaDukuza Clinic, to the KwaDukuza SAPS.

According to DA caucus leader Madhun Sing, they are now fed up with crime and the lack of response from police minister Bheki Cele.

“We have no other choice but to take to the streets to highlight the plight of the community and business sector,” Sing said.

In KwaDukuza, less than two percent of murderers, rapists and thieves go to jail.

“An alarming number of 74 murders was recorded in the 2018 stats in KwaDukuza. An honest and professional police service is required to weed out criminal elements within our communities,” Sing said.

The DA are now calling on all structures of society to join the march, scheduled for Saturday at 10 am, to hand over a memorandum to the police. “Enough is enough. Let us stand together to mitigate crime before it is too late,” urged Sing.

Contact 073 152 8910 or 032 551 1683 or any DA councillors for transport to the march.
