Event or­gan­is­ers must take the blame

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - LETTERS -

The or­gan­is­ers that brought us this night­mar­ish Global Cit­i­zen event should be se­verely chas­tised for their in­abil­ity to pro­vide ad­e­quate se­cu­rity and mar­shals to en­sure the free flow of traf­fic.

Again, South Africa’s im­age has been tar­nished, as was clearly ev­i­denced by poor plan­ning and ex­e­cu­tion.

Crim­i­nal­ity was ram­pant, as gangs took control of the outer perime­ter of the sta­dium, openly threat­en­ing, hurt­ing and steal­ing from in­no­cent vis­i­tors. No cops, no se­cu­rity, no JMPD! The or­gan­is­ers of this chaotic event are cul­pa­ble, by not do­ing their home­work and al­low­ing the chaos that en­sued. Peter Bachtis
