“There will be enough per­son­nel de­ployed daily on foot and ve­hi­cle pa­trols. Ad­di­tional re­sources will join the de­ploy­ments. We are work­ing closely with other na­tional, pro­vin­cial and lo­cal stake­hold­ers to en­sure that our guests and lo­cal com­mu­nity feel safe,” Nt­shinga said.

Po­lice spokesper­son Capt Mali Goven­der said air sup­port would be on standby for the du­ra­tion of the event and should a need arise it will be used.
