The truth is slowly emerging around the Clifton beach debacle in Cape Town. The Cape Town council confirmed that they would meet with SAPS and the Western Cape Police Ombudsman to investigate the actions of a senior police officer.

The police official allegedly prevented law enforcement officials from applying the city’s rules and regulations. For the first time, Mayor Dan Plato acknowledged that all persons were requested to leave the beach and not just certain racial groups. The security company’s actions cannot therefore be dismissed as racist.

This is contrary to Faiez Jacobs of the ANC’s complaint against PPA. Once again, it seems the ANC wants to gain political points from the incident and rather wants to incite further emotions.
