Cape Town - While some have applauded the work done by the Western Cape government in combating the recent farm attacks, the move has not come without criticism.
On Wednesday, the MEC of Agriculture Ivan Meyer revealed that provincial government established an inter-ministerial committee on rural safety which will, among others, be looking at a review and update of the Cape's rural safety plan.
"Today, the premier and I will be meeting with Agri Western Cape to discuss the issue further. Working with Community Safety, we will also be expanding our Watching Briefs court case monitoring to rural cases, to ensure criminals are not let off by poor court processes," Meyer said.
The ANC's Cameron Dugmore said that they would be assisting in tackling the matter, but this has left some Capetonians asking - what about the murders on the Cape Flats?
Cape Argus reader Shafiek Mogamat Joseph said on Facebook: "Farm murders = special attention, Cape Flats murders = no attention."
