Residents from various communities came together at an Imbizo last night to show their support, standing up to fight against crime.
A crowded Salt River community hall was the venue for the people of Woodstock, Salt River and Observatory to air their views and problems which they face in their respective communities.
Problems that were raised were gangsterism, the abuse of women and children, the high murder rate, drugs and the evections of the homeless.
A safer for home all is what community members wants but crime in the Western Cape has only dropped by 17%.
Safety and Security MEC in the Western Cape Leonard Ramatlekane says that it is vital that community members stand together in reporting crime to the police.
Ramaltekane emphasised the standing together of communities, as this could bring crime down significantly.
