    The BCM women painted Kidd’s Beach area blue on Monday, 29 August under the leadership of the BCM District Crime Prevention Head Brigadier Nomazwi Nkombisa.

    Police spokesperson Captain Hazel Mqala said the first phase of today’s operation was a roadblock on the R72 road by the BCM ladies that made sure that the motorists and visitors felt safe when they are travelling towards and outside the East London area.

    She said the team was made of the South African Police Service, BCM Traffics, Provincial Traffics, Law Enforcement, Social Workers and Men for Change.

    “They managed to stop and searched the vehicles, and issue traffic fines in some vehicles that contravened the traffic Acts.”


    A total amount of R27 700 traffic fines was issued.

    “The road block was also honoured by the BCM District Commissioner Major General Vos, Chief Traffic Officer Mr Jacobs, Chief Traffic Officer Tokwe, CPF member Amanda Timms,” she acknowledged.

    Different stakeholders were also present together with the community members and the event was well attended.
