Matlosana police wage war against gangs
02 Sept 2015

 
Klerksdorp -   The moral fibre, social cohesion, peace and security within the communities of Kanana, Jouberton and Khuma in Matlosana have over the past few years been eroded by the emergence and mushrooming of gangs, saysMajor General Patrick Asaneng, Cluster Commander of Klerksdorp.
“These gangs, which mostly consist of youths, have through their total disregard of public order and the law brought fear, despair and anarchy among their communities. Crime and criminality especially at night, over weekends and on month ends have gripped these communities where marauding rival gangs often go out to attack opposing gang members. Law abiding citizens have borne the brunt of their criminal acts ranging from assaults, murders, rapes, robberies, intimidation, house and business robberies.”
He says young children in schools have not escaped the evil clutches and bad influence of the many gangs operating in these communities and this has necessitated the police to develop a multi-disciplinary Gangs and Drugs Operational Planaimed atcombatting, preventing, investigating and prosecuting gang-related crimes but also at mobilising all relevant government and community structures to take a stand against and eradicate this anti-social behaviour. “Already a community outreach initiative was held in Kanana where the criminal justice departments, Education, Social Development, Correctional Services, faith-based organisations and the community participated.”
Recognising the threat to safety and security posed by these gangs, the police working closely with the Office of the Chief Prosecutor in Klerksdorp, have embarked on a new strategy whereby all gang-related reported offences are allocated to dedicated team of investigating officers and prosecutors and these initiatives are starting to bear positive fruit.
Asaneng says on Friday, 28 August 2015, six members of the Dickies Lovers and Dogs For Money Gangs appeared before the Klerksdorp Magistrates’ Court for bail application. The members of these two gangs normally work together as the Jack Rollers to commit rapes. Due to the intensive investigation and the incriminating evidence linking them to the house robbery at and rape of a mother and her two daughters in Jouberton, they have abandoned their bail application and are remanded in custody until 6 November 2015. The arrest of these six has brought the total number of gangsters already arrested including on a charge of murder to 20. The investigation to track and apprehend their accomplices and other gangs is continuing and more arrests can be expected.
“We call  upon all parents, community leaders and the entire communities of Khuma, Kanana and Jouberton to work with the police in making sure that the youth are protected from bad influences of drugs and gangs,” says Asaneng.“Community Police Forums must take an active role in making sure that those who continue to pollute the young by supplying them with drugs and liquor including drug dealers and even non-compliant licensed liquor traders are reported so that they can be arrested and prosecuted.”
