Today, 23 June 2014, Dan Plato, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, together with local councillors will conduct a walkabout in the Mitchell’s Plain Town Centre, engaging with traders to address their safety concerns.

The walkabout, in cooperation with local leaders, seeks to gather testimonies from traders regarding their safety concerns, and discuss possible safety solutions.
