South African President Launches Police Anti-Gang Unit in Cape Town Township

CAPE TOWN – South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa and its minister of police launched on Friday a new police anti-gang unit in a Cape Town township in a bid to tackle gang-related activities, the presidency said.

Ramaphosa met members of the community during a walkabout as part of the launch of the AGU.

“The Anti-Gang Unit is made up of members from specialized units who are working to disable the criminal economy linked to gangsterism, including the drug and firearm trade,” the presidency of South Africa tweeted of the new unit.

The unit has operated in communities including Nyanga, Bonteheuwel and Bishop Lavis in the Western Cape.

“The Unit will continue to be in full operation in the Peninsula area until communities in the greater Western Cape return to normality,” the presidency said in another tweet.
