Arrest Gugs torchers
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
