OVER R60 000 was raised towards fighting crime in KwaZulu-Natal by KZN MEC for Community Safety and Liaison Mxolisi Kaunda, eThekwini Deputy Mayor Fawzia Peer together with the Durban business community during a business breakfast held at the Royal Hotel on 10 November.

MEC Kaunda told the captains of industry in Durban that a collaboration with business is crucial because of government’s limited resources. “Together let us close ranks and drive criminals out of the City. Durban is an economic hub of the province therefore we need all hands on deck to fight the scourge of crime so that the City can continue to be the destination of choice for holiday makers and investors,” said MEC Kaunda.

Councillor Peer, who is also the Chairperson of the Security and Emergencies Committee said a collaboration between government and business was a step in the right direction in a bid to fight crime. “It is important that we mobilise communities against the scourge of crime in our City. It is also imperative that we create a conducive crime-free environment. In that way we will see business flourishing and jobs will be created.”

Businessman Jonas Barausse of the Big Box and representing KwaMashu Business Against Crime said their project has been in existence for a year with 20 volunteers and has seen a 60 percent drop in crime. “By working together we were able to turn the situation around,” said Barausse.
