Chairperson, I hereby move without notice:
That the Council -
1) notes that the blasting of ATMs in the Western Cape province has become a huge concern, a matter of danger and a threat to state security and safety;
2) further notes that the recent blasting of an ATM in Nyanga is the 15th one in three-and-a-half months, which shows that this violent crime is on the increase;
3) realises that these criminals are not only a danger to themselves but also a threat to the community, the government and state security, as well as safety; and
4) urges everyone to join hands and assist the police to arrest these criminals as quickly as possible.
Motion agreed to in accordance with section 65 of the Constitution.
