INCREASED POLICE VISIBILITY
Gauteng police spokesperson Mavela Masondo says there’ll be increased police visibility in and around the two venues.
“As much as we have put plans in place to ensure that these events become crime-free, the cooperation and assistance from the attendees are of paramount importance for us to achieve our mission. We appeal and urge the public to immediately report any suspicious or criminal activity. We advise the public to be vigilant and cautious, not to expose their valuables like cellular phones and wallets. The public is also cautioned not to leave their valuables, like laptops, exposed in the cars and to ensure that cars are properly locked.”
