Today, Tuesday, 20 May 2014, Dan Plato, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, will host an open-air safety talk in Stellenbosch following a spate of violent hijackings in the area.

Minister Plato and the safety delegation will do a walk-about to view the areas in which the incidents took place as well as the surrounding area.
