Ar­rest Gugs torchers

Cape Times - - OPINION -

THE ACDP calls for ar­rests and pros­e­cu­tion of those re­spon­si­ble for torch­ing the Gugulethu fire sta­tion

This is shock­ingly thought­less and ir­re­spon­si­ble be­hav­iour and a clear mes­sage must be sent to oth­ers con­sid­er­ing ex­press­ing their frus­tra­tions by en­dan­ger­ing the lives of oth­ers.

The cul­prits must be ap­pre­hended and face the con­se­quences of their ac­tions, which placed so many other lives in dan­ger, in­clud­ing the el­derly and chil­dren, who could have ur­gently needed the ser­vices pro­vided by these fire­men and women.

The front of the fire sta­tion, in­clud­ing the watch room, en­gine bay doors and the se­cu­rity en­trance gate, sus­tained se­vere dam­age.

The ACDP would ex­pect that a fa­cil­ity like this fire sta­tion would have cam­eras which will have caught the per­pe­tra­tors on the premises.

We are call­ing on the City of Cape Town to make the de­tails re­gard­ing the se­cu­rity in place in such fa­cil­i­ties known to the pub­lic, who rely on these ser­vices.

We are also call­ing for im­me­di­ate ac­tion with re­gard pros­e­cu­tion and in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing ar­rests about last night. Ch­eryl­lyn Dud­ley, MP ACDP
