On the 18th of July 2019, President Cyril Ramaphosa authorised the deployment of 1320 members of the SANDF to various parts of the Western Cape. The SANDF is tasked with working with the SAPS to prevent and combat crime in these areas
This deployment of the SANDF will last for the period of 18 July 2019 to 18 September 2019 and will cost the country R23 391 351.00. While some residents from the affected areas believe that this intervention is temporary and will not work, others welcome it.
