More than 100 foreign nationals mostly Pakistanis and Ethiopians filled Moroka Police Station’s main hall to attended their monthly business safety meetings.

The information released by the station shows that in the past three to five years business robberies and stock theft directed at this group of businessmen has been well managed, but more still needs to be done.

The station’s communications officer John Serala said: “We are here to serve, protect and keep peace among all people in South Africa, be they permanent citizens or visitors; no one is given special favours.

“We want a zero crime society where everyone cannot be targeted and robbed of their happiness.”

One of the businessmen Mohammed Kajed said: “I’m glad to be part of this meeting, this shows and proves to us that we are safe and taken care of by the police, now I can operate my business with no fear.”

Serala says this festive season they have great crime fighting campaigns planned to help reduce crime in all the areas they are policing.

“We have never been as ready as we are to fight criminals on our doorsteps; we want to make sure that they are not offered a space to practice their criminal activities.

“So we appeal to residents to also come forward and help us with any tip-offs or even join us in the crime fighting campaigns that we will be hosting.”

Serala said “We have now received information and we know that criminals are using hammers to brake the walls of the business at night and gain entry and helps themselves to stock, so we will keep sharp eyes on that.
