With only a few streetlights in Humansdorp that were in working condition, ample opportunity was created for crimininals.
People were robbed and stabbed as it was very dark at night and criminals could operate with impunity. Burglary had also increased and residents were fearing for their lives.
Councillor Prinsloo took the matter up with the Electrical department of the Kouga Municipality and the street lights have now been repaired in Town as well as the suburb of Boskloof.
The community has applauded the initiative of their councillor. The Humansdorp Police have also expressed their gratitude.
