[LISTEN] Festive season operational plan to curb crime starts this Friday
Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba says a festive season operational plan will be launched on Friday.
The plan will see police officials introduce special measures to deal with crime in the city as well as traffic offenders during this period.
Mashaba says all police officers will be deployed throughout the season.
One of the challenges that I would like to alert our residents to is this drinking and driving. If people can really take responsibility. At the same time people will be going on holiday, please make sure you have someone looking after your property.Herman Mashaba, Johannesburg mayor
We have got very limited resources in terms of man power and other resources but all our police officers are going to be deployed throughout this period. We don't allow any of our police officials to take leave during the festive season.Herman Mashaba, Johannesburg mayor
Speaking on his imminent departure as the mayor, Mashaba says the job has been brutal but rewarding.
For me personally, it has been the most rewarding and something that I am truly grateful for. It is something that I will never take lightly.Herman Mashaba, Johannesburg mayor
