Latest Email – 25 November 2021 – Crime Update

Who Are We?

In 2001 a group of concerned residents got together as a result of the increase of crime in the area. They felt that they could not sit back and simply complain about the criminal problems in the area, but they had to find a solution and they and the residents would have to become part of the solution. That was the start of the “Edenglen South Ratepayers Road Closure Association”.

Communication Channels

Mamba has set up a WhatsApp Security Group for our suburb. The objective of this group is for residents to inform each other about suspicious activity or a current/ongoing crime situation. If you are a Mamba client or a road closure member and want to join the Security Group then you can contact Mamba or SMS your name and address to 083 300 2975. Mamba will then go through a process to verify you, and that you are an armed response client or road closure member. Once done they will add you to the group.

Our email address ( is the official channel for communication.

It is impossible to expect the committee to be aware of and be part of every and all social media channels set up by various individuals.  There is no guarantee that if you post something on Edenvale Hub (for example) that you will get a response.

Please note that all the relevant communications details are provided below.
