Cele hopes additional police deployment will help alleviate violence on the Cape Flats

More than 20 people have been killed on the Cape flats, since the beginning of the year.

Hoping to curb the scourge some 200 police officers have been deployed and will be working in gang-infested communities.

Police Minister Bheki Cele said he hopes they make a positive impact.

The additional officers come from different provinces and how long they will be in the Cape hasn’t been confirmed.
