CAPE TOWN – The activities of gangs are synonymous with all illegal and illegal businesses in South Africa, not just in drug trafficking, said President Cyril Ramaphosa on Friday.
"Gang activity belongs to all illegal and banned businesses, not only in drug trafficking but in trafficking and smuggling as well as in many other illegal and prohibited activities," he said.
Ramaphosa and Bheki Cele police have officially launched the anti-gang unity unit (AGU) in the Hanover Park in Helsinki. The unit has been operating since October, installed in clusters in Nyanga, Bonteheuwel and Lavis in Western Cape.
He explained that the AGU was launched with the aim of abolishing the abolition and blocking of the criminal economy associated with gangsterism, including drug and firearm supply lines at Hanover Park and other surrounding areas allegedly affected by gang activities.
However, the AGU was a national competence, which is also led to Gauteng and the East Cape province, where it is in need.
"Today we say that the streets of the Hanover Park no longer belong to gangsters, they belong to the residents of Hanover Park Today we declare to the gangsters that we are not afraid of you Children we will come after We will persecute, persecute, find every corner, where you are hiding and bringing back our lives, "Ramaphosa said in his opening speech.
– He's coming after our police. Blue blue men and women will come to you, arrest you, and bring you where you go, behind you.
