ANC WARD COUNCILOR Enos Chiloane and his crew are controlling the traffic on the busiest intersection in Soshanguve. More than 3 000 vehicles an hour are using the intersection which is the corner of M20 and Umphafa Street in Soshanguve.

Councilor Enos Chiloane said he received hundreds of complaints from the residents who are using the intersection to work and school

“I receive many complains about this intersection, some cars ended bumping to each other causing more delays. I wrote an email to the City of Tshwane MMC for Safety and Security, Karen Meyer on the 26 September asking her to deploy the Metro Police to control the traffic. She agreed but I am still waiting until now.

“Last week I started to make sure that the traffic is reduced before it cause an accident that may kill road users, I was joined by 18 community members. This intersection is busy in the morning between 6 and 8 am, in the afternoons between 4 and 8 pm every day. It is worse every Monday morning and every Friday afternoons. It is also worse on the 14, 15, 16, 25 and 30 of every month

“We not will stop controlling traffic until the road is being increased on the sides to reduce traffic and the project has already started it will finish next year April. After the road has been increased we will monitor it and if there is still a lot of traffic we will help to control it again,” said Chiloane.

Off duty, cop abandoned wedding to arrest a criminal

 

By AFRICA KA MAHAMBA

A COP THAT was attending a wedding in Mpumalanga drove back from Nelspruit to arrest the most wanted criminal in Pretoria West.

Captain Simon Motolla has just arrived in Nespriut less than 30 minutes for the wedding on Saturday celebration when he received a tip-off about the most wanted criminal.

Captain Daniel Mavimbela of the Sunnyside police said the brave and dedicated cop just abandoned the wedding and drove back to Pretoria within 30 minutes after arriving at the wedding.

“Despite being off-duty for the weekend and attending the wedding of a friend and fellow captain in Mpumalanga Province, a tenacious, intelligence-driven Sunnyside police captain, Simon Motolla, travelled more than 300 kilometres to organise and lead a sting operation that led to the capture of a suspect of murder who had been on the run for almost a year and a half.

“It is believed that the 34-year-old man was among the suspects who reportedly lured the 23 years old Shaun Douglas Chabalala who was an upcoming musician, to a flat in Sunnyside, east of Pretoria, during May 2018, with a fake advertisement of a luxury camera before the latter was pushed to his death from the seventh floor during what is suspected to be a robbery gone wrong,”said Mavimbela.

Mavimbela said the suspect was reportedly found inside the ceiling of a house in Pretoria West where he hid after he noticed the police, but that was subsequent to an initial search and the SAPS Dog Unit being summoned to that house. 

Tshwane police district commissioner, Major General Daniel Mthombeni, has commended Captain Motolla and his team for their dedication and commitment following the operation. 

“It is officers like Captain Motolla who offer hope to our communities and will stop at nothing to ensure they (communities) are and feel safe,” Mthombeni said. africa@africakamahamba.co.za
