City intensifies fight against crime and drugs
​Fighting crime and the scourge of drugs in communities is one of eThekwini Municipality’s strategic priorities. To demonstrate its commitment, the Municipality met with residents in Ward 67, Emakhazini, on 21 January to discuss ways in which all parties can get involved to eradicate crime and drugs.

Working with the South African Police Service (SAPS) and the local Community Policing Forum, the Municipality aims to address the recent surge in crime including house and vehicle break-ins as well as muggings in the Emakhazini area. At the community meeting, Metro Police, SAPS and the Community Policing Forum pledged their commitment to reinforce partnerships with all community structures in order to chart a way forward in eradicating this scourge.

Councillor Makhosi Mbele commended the community’s willingness to assist as they will play a critical role in solving this problem. “People involved in criminal activities reside within our areas and it is our responsibility to report them to the relevant authorities. This kind of attitude will enable our security forces to formulate proactive strategies to curb crime before it happens,” said Mbele.
