Delmar suspicions confirmed REYANA STEYN
A random inspection at the property next to the Delmar Centre in Panarama which has become a hotspot for vagrants led to 17 parcels of dagga being confiscated.
tre and then they are stopped and picked up, but we are still looking at whether liquor is being sold.” He says another problem comes when the students from Northlink College make their way to the Delmar Centre or they are on their way home then they loiter at the centre. “It is easy for drugs to be sold during this time. A drug transaction would take a few seconds, but we are looking into this.” PWP neighbourhood watch say immediate measures will be put into place to ensure that
the substance abuse comes to an end. They are also hoping that the owners of the plot enclose their property. “We want all plot owners to take ownership and make sure vagrants do not move onto the property,” says a committee member. “Another problem is the trees being set alight on the Plattekloof field when vagrants steal the cables. This must also be dealt with.” . A meeting will be taking place tomorrow to discuss ways of making the area safer.
This confirms the suspicions of the District Watch, Panorama, Welgelegen and Plattekloof (PWP) neighbourhood watch and Parow police that drug dealings are taking place at the centre and vacant plot opposite it. TygerBurger reported last week that measures were being put into place to tackle various issues such as safety, the influx of vagrants, excessive dumping and drugs which have become a major problem at the Delmar Centre (“Delmar Centre ‘under siege’”, TygerBurger 2 May.) “On Thursday at 10:30 we were doing a site inspection and then we saw a group of eight men and one woman on the field,” says Mark Horstman, from the District Watch. “When the group saw us they scattered, we moved closer to see what was happening and then we discovered the 17 parcels of dagga in the electric box. We also confiscated a passport as well as a pair of scissors.” No arrests were made as no one could be linked to the drugs. Horstman says District Watch, PWP neighbourhood watch and the Parow police will be stepping up patrols to ensure there is safety. “We will be doing more patrols in the area. We are monitoring the area for drugs and also looking at the Pictured here are Johan Hulme from District Watch, Sergeant Du Toit from Parow police, Mark Horstman alcohol issue.

City warns about roadworks The City of Cape Town has commenced with repair work on the west-bound carriageway of Francie Van Zijl Drive between De La Rey Road and Connaught Road. The work is expected to be completed by September. The work entails the breaking up of existing road layers and stabilising it. In certain sections bad patches will be removed and repaired.
The contractors will close certain lanes for construction purposes and the flow of traffic may be impeded. Signage is in place to inform road users and a traffic safety officer from the contracted project team will be in attendance to manage any incidents or problems. The City of Cape Town apologises for the inconvenience caused, and thanks motorists for their patience.
