Presenter at Megazone Bollywood radio, Lance Nayager, 26, from Phoenix, Durban, is an active member of Rescue Tech. During the recent floods, he helped paramedics rescue and treat injured people.
Nayager is part of the Phoenix community policing forum to make his neighbourhood a safe place for children.
Speaking to Independent on Saturday, he said he encouraged residents to help close down a tavern which was near a school, a church, a mosque and a temple in Woodview Drive.
“All I wanted was to protect the children. I mean, the tavern was next a school,” he said.
