We have received reports for all the road closures around us that, as with us, they are having problems with intruders. This is typically one or two criminals who move around on foot in the early hours or the morning , jumping walls to commit opportunistic crime.
This is a difficult issue to address, the North and South closures have a boundary of almost 4km and criminals could go over/under anyone’s wall or fence. It is also possible that they can enter during the day and even live within the closures.
Please can everyone review their security and make sure no items of value (bikes) are left in their gardens, sheds and out buildings are securely locked and no valuables are left in cars. If you see anything please alert the Mamba control room on 011 609 0227.
The Committee believes that if you do have an emergency the best option is to first phone. Message delivery and read on Whatsapp is not guaranteed to be immediate. Thereafter use the Whatsapp group to alert everyone.
Remember to always maintain a high level of awareness, especially when you are leaving or entering your home/driveway. Please tell your family and domestic workers to also be on the lookout. Report all suspicious behaviour to Mamba control room (tel number below) and warn the residents using the Mamba Whatsapp Security Group and/or @ESRCAlert.
