A group of motorcyclists showed their token of appreciation to the East London cluster police by handing them a memorandum today at the Beacon Bay Police station.

Pastor Mare who is the president of the Bikers Ride Against Farm Murders organisation commended the police for their work in fighting crime, ensuring the safety of rural and farming communities in the East London Cluster.

“Today, we just want to hand you a letter of appreciation,” said Mare. He thanked the station commander and his members for their initiative, for every partnership in helping the community. He requested the community to keep working with the Police.

The station commander, Colonel Thaynnel Petzer who received the memorandum, expressed his gratitude to the Bikers for their message. A number of bikers have been driving throughout the Eastern Cape visiting various police clusters and sending out this awareness message. Along the way they have been joined by local bikers in support of the cause.

The message of the bikers comes after the recent incident in the Port Alfred cluster and the speedy arrest of the three suspects. A victim of a similar attack was given a special ribbon of support by the Riders. Along the way the ribbons have been handed over to victims who they meet.

The 911 Riders then continued on their quest to Mthatha.

A visit by 911 Bikers was a great honor to Mthatha SAPS members that received them with a lot of enthusiasm and appreciation. The Bikers were welcomed by the Acting Cluster Commander Brigadier Nomawethu Makonza and Mthatha Station Commander Colonel Naidoo.

Pastor Mare handed over a letter of appreciation that was received by Brigadier Makonza. In motivating the members the Pastor said they’re protecting God’s people so they should ask wisdom from Him.

When thanking the bikers Brigadier Makonza said “We always feel honored when the people we serve raise their concerns and appreciate what we’re doing. We are here to listen to you so that we can do better in the fight against crime. May the good Lord protects you on your journey till you reach your homes and may your voices be heard.”
