3D TECHNOLOGY ATTRACTS PEOPLE TO GO OUTING AGAINJuly 17, 2017
Gugulethu, Nyanga, Joslov, Crossroads, Samora, Heideveld and etc are most of the ghettos in Cape Town, South Africa that are characterised by thieves (Xholis) that steal from ordinary people thereby disturbing them from administering their normal day to day activities.
These Xholis are mafias that walk in groups of seven or more and they can pounce on anyone even in broad daylight and they arm themselves with golf sticks, knives and even guns. They are lazy and take advantage of their numbers to harass and steal from people. The less dangerous ones arm themselves with sticks and knives and their goal is to take even a little money from their prey or target.
Moreover, they attack in a way that one would not get assistance from the members of the public. They do not operate in one place once they pounce on a victim they quickly regroup to set another ambush somewhere. They become vicious when they are resisted or when their target tries to fight back. Recently, in Philipi two people where stabbed but were spared their lives when they surrendered their monies to the Xholis. The two men (names witheld for their safety) who were stabbed were treated at a a local hospital.
Moreso, in the same neighbourhood a lady known a Velapy was threatened near the Somali shops and asked for R2 by the menacing Xholis a way they use to gauge whether their victim has money or not but she reported the matter to the society elders who summoned the police who disciplined the wayward thieves.
A not so Nyanga settlement area turned so by the Xholis cannot be spared from criticism on this mafia gang. An alien visiting this location will be under siege if they are to comeby these gangsters. Konnectnews.com was pounced on when we visited Nyanga, graciously we had not carried anything as per advice from those who knew the area. A group of boys armed with planks of wood sorrounded us and quickly searched us in broad daylight and quickly vanished when they found our pockets empty. Their fear was only to hide their identity least they would be apprehended and handed over to the police or the judgement of the society.
The end of the week is the most precarious time especially for those who earn their wages on a Friday. They are prone because either they would be drunk or; have money on them. Even, though these Xholis have become a menace in Cape Town’s soceities it is the police’s herculean task to deal with it least soceity will lay their hands on them in judgement
