The City of Cape Town is offering R5000 to anyone who provides them with the information about people who shot contractors at their building project on Saturday.
Three contractors were shot in the legs at the R500 million Delft Symphony Way housing project on Saturday 04 February. The cause of the shooting is not yet clear but the City has offered R5000 to anyone with information that leads to the arrest of the shooters.
“An award of R5 000 is available for information leading to the arrest of these criminals,” said the City on Wednesday 08 February.
Mayco member for Human Settlements Malusi Booi said they are committed to seeing the project completed. He said they have beefed up security in the area to ensure that work will not stop.
“Law enforcement agencies are monitoring the situation and the City would like to make it clear that it will not tolerate the criminal attacks, community interference or acts of extortion against its projects.
“Members of the community are encouraged to stand with the City for the benefit of 3 300 beneficiaries, from some of the most vulnerable areas including Blikkiesdorp, Malawi Camp and Freedom Farm,” said Booi.
On Saturday, two armed suspects attacked contractors and fled the scene. Three workers are currently recovering from the hospital.
