"No one is helping."


"It's insanely sad and it's getting worse on a daily basis...Our government is turning a blind eye☹☹☹☹."


"They have no fear or worry that anyone might try to do something. They probably know @SAPoliceService won’t even collect and analyse footage or interview people in this area to trace these fuckers. The only thing is for citizens to arm themselves."


"I'm also disappointed, especially the taxi drivers. Taxi drivers are usually armed and could have assisted the motorist, but they looked the other way."
