We hope everyone is well and safe after what has been an extremely stressful period for our country.
It has become very apparent that when SAPS was overwhelmed, the safety and security of ordinary citizens and their families fell to the communities they live in and private security companies.
The security firm of our Closure is Mamba and they must be thanked for all that they have done during this time. Organising with other security companies as well as SAPS and keeping us informed of the situation is hugely appreciated.
If things got worse Mamba would have been key in organising the residents and community associations as we saw security companies doing in Durban. The big benefit here being their security knowledge and communication platforms with residents.
A big thank you to all of our residents who contribute to the Road Closure. Your contribution significantly improves the security and safety of each and every resident, our partners, our children and our homes. The Committee is confident that, if called upon, you would be there for our suburb.
Although we never imagined a scenario such as this, it is comforting to know that the Closure, Mamba and our communication platforms would have given us a big advantage if we needed to mobilise our suburb.
Without these structures we would have to have organised something from scratch when time was of the essence.
Please stay safe.
Regards ESRC Committee
