Police have been deployed at five schools in Manenberg on the Cape Flats. The schools are ravaged by ongoing gang violence in the area. Police Deployed to monitor gang violence at 5 schools in Manenberg

Last week the Western Cape High Court ordered the provincial education department to post guards at the schools following an urgent application brought by the Equal Education Law Centre.

Police will patrol the schools in the morning – and at the end of each school day in the afternoon for the next two weeks. Four primary schools and a high school have been at the centre of gang rivalry and random shoot-outs.

Scores of people have been killed and others injured over the past six months in a seemingly never-ending string of gang battles. The Manenberg Teachers Steering Committee has called on the provincial education department to roll out a plan of action within the two week grace period – afforded by the police patrols, to secure the schools.
