Community members of crime ridden Hanover Park were elated when President Cyril Ramaphosa visited the area on Friday.
The president took a walkabout in the troubled Cape Town township, in the same street where Gift of the Givers volunteer Ameerodien Noordien was allegedly shot and killed as a result of gang violence.
Members of the community shook hands with Ramaphosa as he announced a new anti-gang strategy for the area on November 2 2018.
He also used the opportunity to issue out a stern warning to those responsible for gang violence and crime, telling them that their days were numbered.
“I want to tell you that our presence here is to demonstrate that the days of gangsters is running out, it’s over. We are here to give them a clear notice that we are coming after them.
