The Kenton main street and parking areas have been battling with an ongoing car guard issue for several years now. Many members of the community have complained about them, detailing a variety of problems, including threats and aggression.
Guests at the House Quarters have recently complained about car guards operating after hours on and around the car parking area, often harassing them as late as 20:00 when they return to the guest house for the night.
I met this week with Mr Kasmeni from Ndlambe Municipality with regards to the car guards operating in Kenton. Mr Kasmeni confirmed that Ndlambe By-Laws state that car guards are not allowed to operate within their jurisdiction without permission being granted by the municipality.
PLEASE NOTE: Ndlambe has NOT given permission for any car guard to operate in Kenton.
In addition, Mr Kasmeni has met with the ‘car guards’ and informed them that their operation is illegal.
We would appreciate your support in NOT supporting the illegal car guards.
