Police will monitor some areas affected by looting on the Cape Flats after two truck drivers were injured in Bishop Lavis after being pelted by rocks on Tuesday.
Four people will appear in court on Wednesday in connection with the incident.
Police say they are also keeping a close watch on events at Macassar near Khayelitsha. This follows the looting of spaza shops.
Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Albert Fritz, has condemned the numerous incidents of looting.
MEC Fritz says, “I condemn the reported stoning of a truck and theft of the food it was transporting along Robert Sobukwe near the N2. Looting and malicious damage to property will not be tolerated.”
”I urge all residents to abide by the law and I call on anyone with information which could assist SAPS in their investigation to immediately come forward and report such,” explains Fritz.
