WHAT HAP­PENED THE AT­TACK ON Gaut­eng safety and se­cu­rity MEC Firoz Cachalia and his wife, Nazira, at Em­mar­en­tia Dam in Jo­han­nes­burg was once again big news in the news­pa­pers, es­pe­cially since there have been two sim­i­lar at­tacks in the same area re­cently. Mean­while, there was also con­cern in the West­ern Cape about a plan to col­lect money to pro­tect the prov­ince’s farm­ing com­mu­nity.

WHAT OTH­ERS SAID BEELD said that if crime is al­lowed to con­tinue rag­ing as at present, more and more high-profile peo­ple will be­come vic­tims. “That in­creases the like­li­hood of a de­struc­tive cy­cle of more crime and less in­vest­ment.” Die Burger says it’s a dis­grace that farm­ers have to pro­tect them­selves, be­cause pro­tect­ing its cit­i­zens is the State’s con­sti­tu­tional and moral duty.
