- Securing school routes and aftercares
- Securing clinics and social development offices
Briefly.co.za looks at 10 tweeps responses to this proposal.
Not an immediate solution
Obsession with the past?
Clutching at straws
Traumatic for residents
Is the army equipped?
Unintended negative consequences?
Deploy and employ more police?
Make the police security guards
Soldiers trained to protect and kill
It looks like this suggestion is not such a popular one for the South African public. The DA may need to dig a little deeper when it comes to solutions to the crime in the country if they want the support of the local South African.
