PICS: CIT driver injured after gang of armed robbers attempt heist in Cape Town

Cape Town – A driver of a cash-in-transit (CIT) vehicle was injured when a gang of armed robbers shot him, through the window, during a heist on Robert Sobukwe Drive in Bishop Lavis this morning.

Police spokesperson Novela Potelwa confirmed the incident, and said the police were at the scene.

Cash in Transit Association of South Africa (Citasa) spokesperson Grant Clark said the industry was concerned at the number of CIT related incidents in the last number of weeks, especially when there was a loss of life as one was one too many.

"I can, however, report that Citasa is working around the clock with all CIT role players and our crime-fighting partners, the SAPS, to address the current situation we are experiencing," Clark said.

The robbery comes after the South African Banking Risk Information Centre (Sabric), on behalf of the banking industry, noted the resurgence of CIT robberies since the easing of lockdown restrictions in June this year.

They used to happen almost on a daily basis.
They still are almost every day but hey it's now old news and the African way of life so no one bothers reporting it as the bought and owned press would rather try find a racist story somewhere because that is what gets the sales up.

You just had to slot Africa in there somewhere. Where else in Africa do they happen? No, they don't happen as often as they used to. Some of the people involved have been arrested.

Yes a few arrested but there are plenty of criminals waiting to participate I bet.

Ok instead of African maybe Southern Africa as you are correct the crime hotspot is here in South Africa caused mainly by Southern Africans.
