A fleet of 103 off road vehicles have been unveiled as part of the City of Tshwane’s fight against cable theft.
The vehicles will be on 24 hour patrol at various electricity substations in the the City.
In addition to those vehicles, an extra 1000 security guards will also be deployed to substations around the City.
The City had to fork out R30 million for the vehicles.
Mayor Solly Msimanga said during the unveiling that they opted for off road vehicle bakkies which are Ford Rangers because criminals were going into places that were “small” or where normal vehicles can’t reach.
