John Maytham interviews one of the people who were mugged on Lions Head last weekend & the SA Ambassador to Ireland (who’s son was mugged).
“10 tourists including my son and girlfriend was held at knife point while climbing Lions head. Everything stolen, passports etc including car keys.
Took 20 min to get through to police by them and another 40 min and 10 calls by me. We needed amongst others a van to get there to stop them from stealing the cars. 10111 rang out repeatedly. (God forbid you ever have a real crisis!!) The police man actually asked me where table mountain was!!!
No one came!!! The poor tourists are so traumatised, one has just been in the country for an hour. (I’m with them now at Roeland station. Police shockingly incompetent).
Also phoned metro police who asked my son: “what do you want me to do for you?”
Ranger at bottom also did nothing!”
