Crime Spike

Crime is everywhere you look in Gauteng, hence the old name Gangsters Paradise from our vehicle registration. But somehow Cape Town has taken the mantle over.

Where we live along the banks of the Jukskei River crime has been relatively low. Nearly every night we hear of incidents down the road in Randburg but here I can count on one hand of all the incidents in the last 2 years. 1, thieves stole the neighbour’s gate, and 2, broke our top gate’s motor and stole the battery. That was last year. This year crime has picked up a bit as we are 5 months in and just had our 2 incidents weeks apart.

Last weekend in the rain, thieves stole the neighbour’s irrigation pump which was down buy the river, and last night we had our top gate’s motor smashed open and the battery stolen. That is crime 2 weekends in a row.
