Greater Edendale Community Safety

This petition had 26 supporters

Our community has been experiencing a lot of taxi associated violence. People are shot everyday, learners have also been stopped from going to school due to these never ending taxi wars. Innocent people have been caught in the crossfire and have died. Many of our residents live in constant fear because of the lack of police presence in our community. The community has gathered to peacefully protest and plead with the police for patrols, however the police have not gotten back to us.

As a community we are saddened by the fact that we have to petition for our right to safety. We are also citizens of this country and all constitutional rights should apply to us as well, including the right to safety. With the help of this petition we hope that the police will take into consideration our plea for patrols. If this problem persists we are afraid learners will not be able to write their examinations, people will lose jobs and more innocent people will die.

We are weary of living in constant fear. We too have a right to safety.
