The City of Cape Town's Metro Police took decisive action in Nyanga after residents complained about blocked roads and alleged illegal activities.

In a special cleanup operation, Metro Police officers impounded 12 vehicles which were illegally parked in Mabuwa Road, Nyanga on Thursday, April 10. The vehicles were taken to the Philippi offices.

"Residents have been complaining that the vehicles at a make-shift workshop were obstructing the free flow of traffic and the movement of pedestrians. The workshop was in close proximity of the Liwa and Oscar Mpetha primary schools. Some residents believed that the vehicles were involved in illegal activities and could endanger the school children," says Metro Police spokesperson, Nowellen Petersen.

The cleanup operation was executed in collaboration with the Home Affairs Department who had to verify the identity of foreigners working at the workshop.

"It is the owner's responsibility to contact the Metro Police to collect the impounded vehicles. They will have to pay a fine for offences ranging from obstruction to various vehicle defects," Petersen said.
