Authorities in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro commended residents for a well-behaved New Year’s all while the curfew was lifted just two days ago.
The City says there was a decrease in criminal incidents compared to previous years and no missing children were reported on Saturday. It was also a very windy day in Gqeberha and the beaches were not as full as expected.

The MMC for Safety and Security, Lawrence Troon applauded all role players.

“I think that the people were very excited. It was unexpected to us too, but I think what we must do is really thank the people from the metro for being disciplined and for behaving during this time and above all, we would like to thank our law enforcement like the metro and fire departments. There were roadblocks at the Humehood, everything was peaceful, very few incidents.”
