A man from Kagiso at Chief Mogale has laid a complaint of robbery at Kagiso SAPS on Monday 2021-08-09.
The victim was allegedly robbed at about 03:15 on his way home from a night vigil in the area.
Kagiso Police wish to state that as much as is the victim’s basic right to report crime, he should have complied with Disaster Management Act of 2020 (DMA lockdown regulations and a curfew.
According to the Disaster Management Act of 2020 : night vigils, after tears, social gatherings of any kind, (including political) are prohibited until further notice by the relevant institution. Further than that, a curfew starts from 21:00 pm until 04:00 am.
Kagiso Police are very concern about people defying lockdown regulations which are meant to protect their wellbeing. More and more people are arrested and charged under DMA for defying an order to be in their residential places after 21:00.
“Police are disappointed and equally concerned that some are likely to lose their jobs as they are caught driving under the influence of alcohol. Apart from that, even a meer arrest for defiance of a curfew can cause some damage to your reputation, making it uneasy to secure employment” warned the station commander of Kagiso Police Brigadier Themba Maduna.
Kagiso Police are therefore urging residents to refrain from being part of lawlessness, especially our Youth which still have a lot awaiting for them in future.
Police have got an obligation to investigate, arrest and charge, but we urge our public to act responsibly so that we can together fight crime.
