Wife and husband Joan and David Robertson said, “We’ve never had any problems while doing our shopping. We feel very safe despite crime reports.”
In light of recent robberies at malls and shopping complexes, the NEWS asked residents if they feel safe while doing their shopping.
Clarerize Marè said, “Not really, because you always have to be on the lookout for thieves.” Mandla Madiba said, “Yes I feel safe. I’m not a target, and robberies are normally inside jobs. Unless I get caught in the crossfire then I’d be nervous, but otherwise I’m not afraid.” Emogene Mbokane said, “We are not safe; the crime rate has gone up. Everywhere you go you have to look over your shoulder.”
