Keeping the City safe

Keeping the City safe

Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality together with South African Police Services kicked off its operations on Thursday in an effort to ensure a safe and secure environment within the City.

On Thursday 13 July, the City led an operation targeted at hawkers within the Metro who operate within the CBD, leaving the area in an unsafe and untidy space. Areas covered include Terminus Street, Beaconsfield Road, Caxton Street, Gillwell and Union Streets.

The law enforcement agencies together with the Metro’s Environmental Health Services confiscated over 500 pallets, more than 150 crates and 65 makeshift tables which were left unattended to in the CBD.

On Friday, 14 July, Buffalo City Law Enforcement also targeted illegal liquor operating establishments around the City's CBD area.

11 places of entertainment were visited around Southernwood and central town and 10 were closed for no business licenses.

Places closed down and issued R1000 fines are as follows:

Natalies Tavern in Union Street; Cindy's Wine and Dine in North Street; Ndosi Tarven in Southernwood; C J Chocolate in Southernwood; Premier Entertainment in Southernwood; KwaPiksi in Douglas Smith and Windyridge, Emlanjeni Tavern in Southernwood; Belgrave Bar Lounge in St Pauls Road; Chunky Charlie Tavern in the CBD and CD's Tavern in Gillwell Road.

The only place that was found to be compliant was the Zooming Lounge in Stephenson Street.

During these raids, eight unlicensed vehicles were charged at these places.

On Saturday, 15 July and early hours of Sunday 16 July, an operation seeking to ensure safety on the roads which was conducted by BCMM Traffic Services, Law Enforcement Services and SAPS, netted 51 drunk drivers in the following areas:

23 people in Mdantsane, 9 in Amalinda, 13 in Devereux Avenue, four in Cambridge, one in Bypass and one in Southernwood.

This operation is part of our commitment to servicing our citizens and being a City Hard at Work in ensuring that we ensure a safe and secure environment whilst providing an efficient and responsive service against lawlessness.
